Nomad Dinner Series

Produced by Linda Hamilton, owner of Nomad Chic, the series of dinners will transport you from Baja to South Africa for a dining experience unlike any other. Experiential dining means you connect not only with other diners, but with the environment represented in each event. All dinners held at the Sunset Test Kitchen at Cornerstone in Sonoma from 6:30-9:30.

Three-course dinner paired with Valle de Guadalupe and local wines.
