On Tuesday,  October 6, Legal Sea Foods in Park Square will host a seminar and wine dinner with Joseph Phelps Vineyards. Established in 1973, Phelps bought the 600-acre Connolly cattle ranch in Spring Valley and began planting vineyards and construction of a winery. Four decades later, the flagship wine, Insignia, is recognized as one of the world’s great wines. Joe became a leader in a remarkable group of entrepreneurs who launched a new era of excellence in California wine.

Legal Sea Foods will team up with granddaughter of Founder Joseph Phelps, Elizabeth Neuman to host an exclusive seminar and four-plus-course dinner featuring signature cuisine paired with her selections from the Phelps vine. The menu will be presented as follows in Park Square’s 10,000 bottle wine cellar:
