High West Distillery Bourbon Dinner

High West Distillery was founded in 2006 by David Perkins and his wife, Jane. David, a former biochemist, was inspired to open his own distillery after seeing the parallels between the fermentation and distilling process and his own work in biochemistry during a trip to the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky. In 2004, David and his family relocated to Park City, Utah to begin their new venture, where they began distilling in 2007. They chose Park City because of David’s love of the Old West and Utah’s little-known whiskey history.

Chef Carlos is excited to pair a 5 course meal with their excellent bourbon whiskies. High West has four core products, American Prairie Bourbon, Double Rye!, Rendezvous Rye, and Campfire. These four whiskeys showcase High West's phenomenal understanding of spirit distilling.

Ryder Estate Wine Dinner

Ryder Estate Wine Dinner

The wines of Ryder Estate are crafted from estate grown grapes from our vineyards in Monterey County, located in California’s golden Central Coast. The Monterey County growing region is a wonder, with a myriad of soils, elevations and microclimates that allow us to grow an array of varieties. The indelible influence of the Monterey Bay and the enormous submarine canyon that lies two miles below its surface results in cool coastal conditions throughout our growing region. Each variety we grow is planted in the location that is most suitable for that grape and where we believe it can reach its full flavor potential.

Our family takes pride in the wines of Ryder Estate and we hope you enjoy them. In each bottle, we strive to reflect the unique soils, climate and singular quality of the Monterey growing region and California’s Central Coast.

Silver Oak Wine Dinner

Silver Oak Wine Dinner

It All Began With a Handshake

Silver Oak began over a handshake between two friends with a bold vision: focus on one varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon, aged exclusively in American oak and worthy of cellaring for decades to come.

Raymond Twomey Duncan, a Colorado entrepreneur who began investing in California vineyards in the late 1960s, and Justin Meyer, a winemaker and former Christian Brother, began in a Napa Valley dairy barn in 1972, producing only 1,100 cases of their inaugural vintage.

Over the next two decades, Silver Oak grew in popularity. Our Napa Valley and Alexander Valley Cabernets sold quickly upon their release from the winery and became a sought-after staple on restaurant wine lists around the country. After selecting Daniel Baron to succeed him as winemaker in 1994, Justin retired, selling his share of Silver Oak to the Duncan family in 2001.

With David R. Duncan serving as President and CEO and Tim Duncan as Executive Vice President, the Duncan family continues to operate the winery to this day.
