If you agree with Ernest Hemingway’s sentiment that “wine is the most civilized thing in the world”, then we have something for you and 7 of your closest friends. Michael and Jim Pullen have generously donated a six-hour event including a home tour, several wine tastings and dinner. Enjoy a unique combination of wines from around the world; from a French Bordeaux, to a cult Napa wine and many vineyards in between. You will experience the wines paired with different foods that will bring out the flavors hidden within the food and wine. After dinner, move to the wine room where two wines await. See if your palette can tell the difference in a $1000 bottle of wine versus a $15 bottle. This is followed by a Napa Horizontal tasting outside by the fire.

The Pullen home is a hidden treasure located in Norman that has been featured on HGTV and several publications. From the moment you walk into this one of a kind home, you will be truly amazed and transcended into a European Manor. An evening of great wines, many laughs, unique food pairings, all surrounded by art and antiques from around the world.
