Lela is proud to present a culinary journey in Minneapolis with Lela's Wine Dinner Series.

Join us for a very special wine event featuring 6 amazing Pinot Noir's & Chardonnay's from Fossil Point & Center of Effort Winery. The wines will be paired to a 5 course dinner specially prepared by Lela’s Executive Chef, Joe Homes. Joined by winemaker & Minnesota native Nathan Carlson. 

Nathan grew up in the St. Croix River Valley and was introduced to great wines and their winemakers while working in the local Twin Cities restaurant scene. He moved west to further his studies and fell in love with winemaking for it's combination of science, agriculture, tradition and craft. For the past twelve years Nathan has focused on creating a selection of delightful wines for Center of Effort. 

"The wines from this vineyard are exciting and pretty clear standouts among our peers ... High natural acidity, and high natural concentration make for attention-getting wines that still pair well with food, and age far better than most California examples of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
