The Wave...of American Flavors has an exciting evening planned for the March Tables in Wonderland Discovery Dinner. This month's Discovery Dinner will be celebrating our Central Florida Strawberry Season. Our Farmer/Chef dinner will feature Lott Farms located just west of Plant City, Florida. Mike and Sandy Lott started their farm in 1979 on rented land and purchased and built their family farm of 50 acres in 1983. They have lived on and farmed this land with their children and grandchildren since that date. Mike's great strawberries are sold under the Classic label through C&D Produce Distributors.

The Wave... of American Flavors welcomes Stephanie Putnam as the wine representative. Stephanie Putnam is the Director of Winemaking at Raymond Vineyards, where she oversees all aspects of winemaking for this iconic Napa Valley winery. Before joining the Boisset Family Estates team, Stephanie spent eight years as winemaker at Far Niente Winery, where she contemporized their house style. Prior to that, she was part of the team at Hess Collection, where she began as a cellar worker and rapidly progressed to winemaker. While there she also worked with the winery's South American partners. Throughout her tenure at these highly acclaimed Napa Valley estates, Stephanie has focused on producing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Her wines have won acclaim, including recognition in the Wine Spectator's Top 100, Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 and being named The Wine News Cabernet of the Year.
