We don't recall any wine-drinking happening in the Harry Potter books (though we're sure hordes of nerds will rise up to correct us if we're wrong), but that hasn't stopped City Winery from putting on a Harry Potter-themed wine dinner, coming in October.

Raise your glasses, and your wands, at this Oct. 24 dinner, which boasts pairings from Sommelier (and, for one night only, "Head Potions Master") Rebekah Mahru. For $85, Potter-heads will get a four-course prix fixe, where each course is themed to one of the four houses of Hogwarts. Plus wine, of course.

Frankly, we can't quite imagine what those courses will look like, but this dinner promises to be the perfect occasion for you to break out your Halloween costume of authentic Hogwarts robes a few days early. Tickets are available now for City Winery VinoFile members; bookmark the page and keep checking, as they'll go on sale to the general public soon.
