In honor of its 40th anniversary, Morton’s The Steakhouse is hosting A Taste of Two Legends, a celebration alongside Napa Valley’s wine making family, The Mondavis. On Saturday, October 27 at 6:30pm, patrons and wine aficionados are invited to enjoy a dining experience complete with a six-course, chef-curated menu paired with wines from four Mondavi generations, including exclusive library wines and new family projects not available to the public anywhere else.
“Morton’s is one of the most distinguished steakhouses in the country,” said Tim Whitlock, COO Morton’s The Steakhouse. “We are thrilled to partner with a powerhouse, the Mondavi family, to celebrate 40 fantastic years with our amazing customers.”
Tylor Field, III, Divisional VP of Wine and Spirits for Morton’s The Steakhouse, and the Mondavi Family will lead a discussion about the rare wines.
A Taste of Two Legends will feature an 18 liter bottle of Cabernet Based Wine blended by third and fourth generations of the Mondavi family, including Tim Mondavi, Peter Mondavi Jr., Marc Mondavi, Rob Mondavi, Jr. and Angelina Mondavi. The family named this wine Ancora Insieme, which means "Still Together." Ancora Insieme is a blend that encompasses both the original and modern winemaking philosophy of Napa Valley. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley will auction off this one-of-a-kind bottle on the evening of the 27th with all proceeds going to their organizations. All guests attending A Taste of Two Legends nationwide will have the ability to bid on this exclusive item.
