Ruth's Chris Steak House will present the Stags' Leap Winery pairing dinner October 16 through October 21 at 108 participating restaurants across the country.
Ruth's Chris is excited to partner with Stags' Leap Winery, known for growing some of Northern California's best red wine grapes, to provide guests with an opportunity to experience a variety of Stags' Leap wines accompanied with an exceptional menu. From pairing the full-bodied white Viognier with a seasonal Carrot Ginger Soup to incorporating the balanced and fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon into the recipe for the Shallot Reduction, the flavors of both the food and wine together were carefully balanced when creating the special dinner.
"We are thrilled to be featuring the Stags' Leap newest addition, Stags' Leap Investor Red Blend. This wine, featured in our third course, offers layers of fruits and spices that marry perfectly with our Wild Mushroom Ragout served over Pan Seared Polenta," says Abdiel Aleman, vice president of culinary development. "You'll be sure to find something special in each of the five carefully crafted courses we created for this one-night-only event. We invite you to join us as we celebrate these unique seasonal flavors."
The Ruth's Chris Stags' Leap Winery dinner pricing, times and dates vary by location with an average price of $115 per person plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are required for this event.
