The second dinner in The Chef and The Somm series, will feature 5 courses from Chef Richard paired with Piemontese selections chosen by our Sommelier Chris Dillman.
No wine region outside of France possesses more world class vineyards than Italy’s Piedmont.
Here, in the foothills of the Alps, a diverse group of unique grapes varietals thrive. From the darkly floral Dolcetto, to powerful age-worthy Barolo and Barbaresco, and exotic outliers like Freisa and Grignlino, the Piedmont provides a wealth of world class wines.

Chef Richard Blondin
Chef Richard Blondin moved to Ohio from Lyon, France, as a young chef eager to travel and excited to try his hand cooking stateside. More than two decades later, he’s still here.
A lot has changed on the Columbus dining scene over those decades, but The Refectory’s reputation as the city’s finest dining option has not. Blondin’s impeccable French technique, masterful sauces and artistic presentation helped earn the restaurant a coveted trifecta of awards—Best Fine Dining, Best Romantic Restaurant, and Best Overall Restaurant in Columbus!(OpenTable March 2018)
Chris Dillman, Top Sommelier
Columbus’ very own Chris Dillman has twice won the Top Sommelier honors in the mid-west region in his journey of preparing for the Master Sommelier exam. Locally, he is simply without peer in his knowledge, palate, his amazing ability to educate others and his relentless drive to further his skills.
