This year, the Wine Weekend will focus on "Islands Celebration" in order to showcase Paul Leonard's Cuisine. As we know, the origin and the seasonality of the produce and raw ingrediaents are very important for our Chef, as all the products used in Eriska kitchen are from as close to Eriska as possible.
