Wine & Grilling: The Perfect Private Event for Summer

Wine & Grilling is back, baby! Last summer we were not able to offer Palate Partners’ most popular event, but we're back for 2021 and ready to bring the wow-factor. Kick your family reunion or corporate event up a notch!

Everyone's favorite Culinary Institute of America graduated chef, Deb, teaches how to create some amazing grilled dishes during her live demo - and brings along some absolutely amazing wines to pair.

We can even arrange to have our owner, Connoisseur and Chief, and all around Grand Poobah of Wine, Mike Gonze attend!

Join us here at our school in Lawrenceville, or have us come to you!

All attendees will go home with tasting notes and a recipe to re-create at home! Below is a great example of how your event can run - or work with us to customize an event that works best for you. Contact us today at


Step 1: Hors d'oeuvres

Start off light with a pairing of bubbles and grilled hors d’houvres when you arrive.

Step 2: Expert Demo

Next, our Culinary Institute of America graduated chef, Deb Mortillaro, demonstrates how she created the delicious foods from our custom menu.

Step 3: Outdoor Grilling

Then step outside to experience the WOW factor of grilling more than just hotdogs and burgers - Beef wrapped in a towel and buried in the coals, a side of salmon grilled on a bed of herbs, grill veggie salad, even grilled strawberries with grilled pound cake …

*substitutions and menu adjustments available.

Step 4: Wine Class

Back inside for a private wine lesson from Wine Expert and owner of Dreadnought Wines, Mike Gonze while your dinner is finished.

Step 5: Explore and Examine

As the food on the grill is finished we parade the beautifully grilled fare through the dining room so you and your guest can experience the answer to all the questions that you have asked.

Step 6: Taste!

Last but not least… a buffet of all the goodies we cooked on the grill.
