Winemaker dinner in either Baton Rouge or New Orleans?

I'm thinking of giving my parents the gift of a winemaker dinner for Christmas. I don't live in Louisiana anymore so I'm not up to speed on what may or may not be happening as far as wine dinners go.

I got the idea because where I live now, certain restaurants periodically host wine dinners, so I'm guessing that's happening around the country. Basically, a winemaker from some winery (usually domestic) visits the restaurant and a special multi-course meal with wine pairings is planned. That is the only thing available in the restaurant that night so all patrons are participating and the winemaker talks about each wine as it is served.

So...does anyone know of any restaurants in New Orleans or Baton Rouge that do events like this? Thanks for your help!

(I posted this on the NOLA board as well.)
