Battle of the Wine Heavyweights at Indigo

Williams Selyem  vs. Dehlinger — yes, it’s not quite at the level of suspense as an Iron Chef America episode featuring Todd English, but it’s a great idea nonetheless. San Francisco’s Indigo Restaurant has put a fresh spin on their popular wine lovers dinners with a new "Battle of the Varietals" format for the rest of this month.

Details from the restaurant behind the cut.

The dinner includes 6 different boutique wines from the list below, with two wines poured per course (3 oz pours each), and will be paired with a wonderful 4 course menu.  Dinners start at 7 pm.  As for the date, you pick the night that works for you, first come-first served.
