Morton’s and the Mondavi Families: Celebrating the Legendary Blend

Steak and wine, in my mind go hand in hand.  I love a delicious pure tasting steak, complimented by a perfectly spiced, warming glass of red wine.  To me, there is no better pairing.  On Thursday, October 7, Morton's is bringing this match made in heaven to an all new level by hosting  the largest ever Virtual Wine Makers dinner.  In history breaking fashion the Mondavi families are setting aside their differences and coming together in one grand fashion.  Michael Mondavi of Folio Fine Wine Partners, Tim Mondavi and Marcia Mondavi Borger of Continuum Estate and Peter Mondavi, Sr., Peter Mondavi, Jr. and Marc Mondavi of Charles Krug Winery will all be broadcasting live from the Carriage House at the Charles Krug Winery in Napa, into the private dining rooms at Morton's across the US as they lead their dinner guests on a tour of their vineyards, all paired with the cuisine of Morton's.  

The menu includes:
Smoked Salmon Pizza
Tenderloin Crostinis
Miniature Crab Cakes
Charles Krug – Peter Mondavi Family, Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc, 2009

Harvest Green Salad with Sea Bass and Roasted Caper Vinaigrette
Isabel Mondavi, Sonoma Carneros, Chardonnay, 2008
New York Strip Sirloin
Baked Sweet Onions with Gruyère
Roasted Tomato stuffed with Leaf Spinach
Roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes
Continuum, Napa Valley, 2007
M by Michael Mondavi, Amino Vineyard, Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006
Charles Krug – Peter Mondavi Family, Napa Valley, VS Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006

Cappuccino Cream
Charles Krug – Peter Mondavi Family, Napa Valley, Zinfandel Port, Lot XIII

 The evening kicks off at 8:00 pm on October 7th at the Morton's Seaport in Boston.  It winds down at 10:30 pm and includes a silent auction as well.  Tickets cost $175.00 per person, tax and gratuity included.  Please call 617-526-0410 to make reservations.

This promises to be an incredible evening.  I have always been a fan of the Mondavi Vineyards and have found their wines to be consistently delicious.   Though a bit pricey- this event may just be worth it!!
