An October Evening with "The Jersey Devil"

Here's a great way to spend a beautiful fall night out at one of your favorite independent restaurants while benefiting a great local non-profit and drinking Jersey produced wine, with the winemaker. At Tortilla Press Cantina on October 14th we're doing our first Jersey Wine Dinner featuring Jim Quarella from Bellview Winery located in Landisville, NJ. Jim makes great wine & we're featuring two of my favorites (this is where the Jersey Devil Comes in) Jersey Devil Red & Jersey Devil White Table Wines with our entrees.
