In celebration of two significant milestones, Morton’s The Steakhouse and The Mondavi Family have joined forces for A Taste of Two Legends, a once-in-a-lifetime event commemorating the legendary steakhouse’s 40th anniversary and the 75th anniversary of the renowned wine-making family’s legacy in Napa Valley.

On October 27, discerning diners and wine aficionados are invited to the historic Carriage House at the Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley for an unparalleled dining experience. The event will feature six-courses of chef-curated cuisine perfectly paired with world-class wines from four Mondavi generations, including Charles Krug’s exclusive library wines and new projects not available to the public anywhere else.

“Morton’s is one of the most distinguished steakhouses in the country,” says Tim Whitlock, COO Morton’s The Steakhouse. “We are thrilled to partner with a powerhouse, the Mondavi family, to celebrate 40 fantastic years.”
