Inaugural “Sustainable Winemakers Dinner” Thursday, August 7th

A Farm To Fork Experience

MONTEREY, CA, Rio Grill, located in the Crossroads, Carmel, celebrates all that is sustainable with its Inaugural “Sustainable Winemakers Dinner” Thursday, August 7th at 6:00 p.m.  A memorable meal typically involves fresh food and delicious wine shared with friends or family in a pleasant setting.  Rio Grill’s Inaugural Sustainable Winemakers event promises to feature all three while creating an experience that brings sustainable farm food and wine to the table for our winemakers dinner!

"We wanted to promote local growers and raise awareness of small-scale wineries that are using sustainable practices," said Joe Valencia General Manager of Rio Grill.  “A shared meal with local people, whether friends or friends-to-be, with a great chef, great farmers, and  great wines is just about the perfect expression of that passion. I can't wait for this dinner, and I hope we get enough support to do them over and over again."

Rio Grill is pairing Chef Cy Yontz’s great food with the tasty sustainable wines of McIntyre Vineyards and Heller Estate Wines.  Join us at Rio Grill Thursday, August 7th!  Guests will enjoy tasty appetizers, sip wine and chat with the wine makers about their fabulous wines at 6:00 p.m..

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. guests will move into the Santa Fe Room and sit down to a four-course dinner with the winemakers.  Chef Cy has created a course to pair with each of four different wines featured.
