The HRTM International Dinner Series is one of the most gourmet dining experiences you can have in Las Cruces. Held on Thursday nights, your evening starts at 6:00 pm with a wine tasting and hors d'oeuvre reception in our Bobby Lee Lawrence Academy of Wine. Then dinner starts in 100 West Café at 6:30 pm. All are five course meals with specially paired wines. The dinners cost $62.50 per person.

The dates and themes for the International Dinners are:
February 9 - Brazilian Steakhouse
March 2 - Asian
March 16 - Trinchero Family Estates Winemaker Dinner*
April 6 - Italian
April 20 - French

*As part of the Gerald Thomas Chair program, on March 16, there will be a very special international dinner. This fine dining Italian meal will feature the award winning wines of Trinchero Family Estates. Mr. Barry Wiss, Director of Trade Relations, will host the dinner and provide tasting notes on the wine pairings.

Please stay tuned for more details about the menus and wine pairings for each dinner.
