The tour for six people starts with a wine tasting around the mahogany dining room table at the Lester Garland house in Trinity with sommelier Marieke Gow of the Twine Loft Restaurant.
The dining room table was made for Isaac and Benjamin Lester from a mahogany log found in the Atlantic Ocean, off the co ast of Portugal, on March 28, 1773.
Wine will be decanted through a Georgian sterling silver funnel that was owned by John Bingley Garland and made in London, England in 1821.
From there, patrons will enjoy a walk to three historic private homes in Trinity to enjoy a tour guided by the owners, with wine and small plates served.
The three homes will be decided when the mutually agreed upon date has been selected for the tour and will be among the finest restored heritage homes in historic Trinity.
Guests will be treated to live music and/or entertainment at the final stop.
