Downtown Tucson’s Elvira’s is hosting an “Our Roots” four-course wine pairing dinner with Frias Family Vineyards 7 – 10 p.m. on Tuesday, January 8.

Chef Alejandro Nevades and his southern Mexican-inspired dishes have got a special date with some of Napa Valley’s finest wine, all while representing the flavors and ingredients of Hispanic heritage, culture, and unity.

It’s not only a chance to experience an expertly paired dinner that tastes like the roots of two cultures, but to also meet the modern winemaker that’s traveling from California, Manny Frias.

Seats are $70 per person.

The seating is going to be limited due to demand and space inside the restaurant, so be sure to purchase your tickets before the 4 p.m. deadline on Monday, January 7.
