Dinners & Celebrations
From our signature Vintner’s Dinner to private gatherings such as anniversary celebrations, Groom’s Dinners or company outings, White Cross Cellar can provide an intimate setting and experience you can’t find anywhere else.
Treat yourself to a true epicurean gourmet experience by joining us for a Vintner’s Dinner. Our Vintner’s Dinner is a four to five course meal featuring a fun and innovative menu that pairs each course with a White Cross Cellars wine. The evening begins with an array of appetizers and samples of wine in our tasting room with the remaining courses served at the Ox Yoke Inn.* White Cross Cellars chooses the theme, creates the menu, and selects the recipes for each dinner and then we pair our wine with each course.
*Due to COVID19 the appetizers are prepared and served at the Ox Yoke Inn.
