This spectacular dinner brings together one of the sherry country’s most recent success stories with one of its most historic and traditional companies. Fernando de Castilla was purchased in 1999 by Norwegian-born Jan Pettersen, who has rapidly turned this small, boutique bodega into one of sherry’s elite producers. The history of Osborne, in contrast, dates back to 1772, making it one of Spain’s oldest wineries: throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this firm in the town of El Puerto de Santa María was renowned for its distinctive wines.

We’re delighted to welcome Jan Pettersen as a host for this dinner at Northern Spy Food Co., as well as Olivier Gailly from Osborne. With a menu built around seasonal, locally-grown ingredients, Northern Spy Food Co. is a true New York neighborhood gem. This dinner features a selection of excellent wines from both producers, including several sherries of considerable age, and Northern Spy’s convivial atmosphere and inventive cuisine offer an ideal setting to experience these.
