Pig and Fig Hosts Special Wine Dinners
Updated: Dec 17, 2020
Pig and Fig’s owner, Chef Laura Crucet Hamilton, has hosted over 60 wine dinners over the past few years. Every one of them has sold out in less than two hours. Luckily, there are four more scheduled in the next two months. But diners have to be on the email list to get a table. The dinners often feature California, Washington or Oregon wineries specializing in Rhone varietals. “It’s just a very food friendly style of wine,” said Crucet Hamilton.
Although she has no formal wine training she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, and while she was living in Paris, her love of wine took off. But the story of her wine dinners doesn’t start in Paris. It starts in White Rock, where she got together with sort of an underground group of hard core wine nerds, and big time wine collectors.
