Globetrotting in the Southern Hemisphere; Couple’s Dinner

Pack your bags, you’re headed down to the Southern Hemisphere… For a stellar wine dinner, that is!

The good news is that you don’t even have to leave Nashville to do so, you’ll simply return to the point of purchase, in this case Loews Vanderbilt Hotel! On Friday, May 10, 2024, Pamela and Anthony Cmelak and their amazing wines will join you, along with Loews Executive Chef Sean Strolle. After two years cooking one course for the Pairings dinner, Chef Strolle is more than ready to pair a full meal with these wines. It’ll be a wild ride with some of Argentina, Chile, South Africa, New Zealand, and of course Australia’s brightest stars in the winemaking world!


This is your chance to truly experience wines from the dynamic New World hemisphere. Whether you’re an aficionado or wanting to learn more, this is the dinner for you! Pamela and Anthony have curated a lineup of incredible bottles that showcase the beauty of each region. The Southern Hemisphere can often be overlooked, but after you attend this dinner, you’ll never make that mistake again! Paddles up if you’re ready to head South!
