Always A Ball With Brian

BRIAN BALL takes Frankie Lemmon very seriously, and whether it is hosting guests at his estate in Sonoma or flying to Raleigh to let the good times roll, he always creates fun and fellowship wherever he lands.

This year, Brian has decided to come back to North Carolina in the Fall for a family-style celebration with a delicious meal prepared harvest style at a community table, paired with the extraordinary wines of SKIPSTONE. As harvest is ending in the vineyards, this friend-filled table will be toasting the 2024 vintage with a bountiful table.

Mala Pata is a local Raleigh team including Angela Salamanca, Zack Gragg, Eric Montagne, and Marshall Davis.  The team focuses on rich, Latin American themed food with fresh heirloom corn masa grounded in-house. Expect highlights of their dishes to include fresh tortillas, tamales, mole chicken and more!

SKIPSTONE is tucked between two stunning hillsides in the mountains above Alexander Valley and produces some of the greatest wines of the region. Brian will be pouring his age-worthy and highly sought-after wines while he entertains you in ways that only Brian can. Nothing can be a better beginning to a North Carolina Autumn than an evening filled with food, fun, fellowship and one of the dearest friends of Frankie Lemmon.
