“We’re excited to announce this innovative free event partnership with Colonial Wines & Spirits,” said Ryan Herget, president and CEO of Chef Shuttle. “We believe it’s a great way for our restaurant partners to pair their seasonal food concepts with Colonial’s drinks and cocktails in a fun, engaging environment for our customers.”
Clark Trim, owner of Colonial, said the year-long tasting events are a great way to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the store. “We hope tasting events like this help inspire our customers to celebrate more and provide them with ideas for hosting their own events and dinner parties,” said Trim. “Entertaining at home couldn’t be easier. Pick up the perfect beverage at Colonial, order food in with Chef Shuttle and spend the evening enjoying time with friends and family.”
Chef Shuttle restaurant partners and drink pairings will be announced monthly on Facebook through Chef Shuttle and Colonial’s social media accounts and via Colonial’s weekly e-newsletter.
