Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is hosting a Women Behind The Wine - Pouring Success Wine Dinner to honor female trailblazers in the winemaking industry, featuring vineyards from California. This extraordinary event will begin at 7PM on either August 25 or 26, based on location.
All wines featured are produced by female winemakers: Honig – Ashley Egelhoff, Emmolo Merlot – Jenny Wagner, Migration Wines – Dana Epperson and Cakebread – Niki Williams. The guided experience features a five-course pairing menu, showcasing seasonally-inspired dishes that perfectly complement the four curated wines. Guests will learn about each wine style and winemaker along the way.
"We are thrilled to partner with these exceptional winemakers for a special evening at all of our locations," says Patrick English, Vice President of Operations for Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. "These women are visionary leaders in the industry, and we can't wait to tell their story and introduce their incredible wines."
The menu begins with a Chilled Fresh Corn & Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho. This vibrant dish featuring tender lobster and a creamy avocado lime sorbet pairs delightfully with the crisp and citrusy Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc North Coast produced by Williams.
"As a winemaker for Cakebread, I feel so fortunate to work with the incredible estate vineyards that we have," says Williams. "Cakebread has a strong commitment to quality, sustainability, diversity and being good people overall."
Guests will next refresh with a Pickled Nectarine, Blueberry & Burrata Salad, whose balanced flavors elevate the fruitiness and earthy undertones of Migration Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, produced by third-generation sonoman, Epperson. For the third course, savor the Roasted Barbecue Shrimp & Zucchini Dill Fritter. This garden-fresh dish pairs harmoniously with the rich characteristics of Emmolo Merlot Napa Valley, produced by owner and winemaker, Wagner.
"Emmolo is my Mom's maiden name and I took over making the Emmolo wines about a decade ago," says Wagner. "My Mom has always been a go-getter and she has taught me to push the envelope and put my own mark on the wines that I make."
The fourth course is Fleming's signature Filet Mignon with Crispy Maitake Mushroom. The robust flavors of this dish are enhanced by the berry and nutty notes of Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, produced by viticulturist, Egelhoff. To conclude, the sweet and creamy Apple Brie Tart is the perfect finale for an unforgettable evening.
