The luxury Napa report has announced their 2016 Masters Winemaker Dinner Series schedule.
Wine and foodie lovers will really enjoy the 2016 Masters Winemaker Dinner Series. Most of all, it’s a unique way to participate in a fine dining experience along with some of the best wines in the Napa / Sonoma area. The upcoming dinners will include: Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Silver Oak, Opus One and the iconic Robert Mondavi Winery.
Frederic Najem is The Meritage Resort director of food and beverage and was quoted, “These dinners are an opportunity for top Napa Valley wineries to showcase their wines in a unique way in their own backyards,” said . “Wineries often have these types of dinners at restaurants throughout the country and overseas, but rarely in the Napa Valley or Northern California. This is their opportunity to work directly with our culinary team to create a menu that pairs perfectly with their wines from the first sip to the last bite.”
