The Arizona Biltmore’s “Winemaker Dinners” return for the 26th season, running through June 2016.
Wright’s at The Biltmore is the venue for the dinners that combine innovative gourmet dining and acclaimed wines, with the winemakers there to discuss their vintages, followed by after-dinner drinks and cigars.
At each dinner, guests dine on a multi-course menu paired with specially selected wines. The 26th season will feature wineries in California from Napa and Sonoma counties. In addition to savoring gourmet dishes and sipping fine wines, diners will learn about the wines from representatives of the wineries, and enjoy cigars and Port or other favorite after-dinner drinks on Wright’s patio.
The 2015-2016 season of Winemaker Dinners will feature the Robert Craig Winery on Nov. 5; Taittinger/Domaine Carneros on Dec. 3; January Justin/Landmark on Jan. 7; and Cakebread Winery on Feb. 3-4.
