Innate Wine Dinner
Thu, Feb 27, 2020 at 7pm
On Thursday, February 27, at 7 p.m. Edmund’s Oast restaurant will host a wine dinner inspired by Innate Wines and featuring its founder/winemaker Nate DeCamps, a native South Carolinian. The dinner will offer a thorough lineup of Innate wines: Pinot Blanc, Tocai Friulano, Arneis, Mourvedre, and Carignan.
DeCamps grew up in rural South Carolina, experiencing first-hand what it means to rebuild after Hurricane Hugo devastated thousands of trees and crops on his family's farm. With his father, DeCamps went about restoring and replanting — plums, nectarines, peaches, cherries, pears, figs, 100 different kinds of apples. He was also introduced to the only kind of vino the Palmetto state supports, growing muscadine and scuppernong grapes, and dipping his toes in homemade winemaking.
As an adult DeCamps loved wine, and studied it in his spare time while pursuing a career as a doctor at MUSC. After four years he decided to ditch the white coat and moved to Napa Valley where he interned and volunteered at several wineries.
Today, DeCamps strives to let his grapes express their "innate attributes and characteristics," hence the name, Innate Wines.
Chef Bob Cook and Pastry Chef Heather Hutton will prepare a four course “family style” dinner to compliment the wines. The dinner will be held in “The Library”, the private dining room at Edmund’s Oast. Tickets are $130, all inclusive. Seating is extremely limited.
