Ferre Ferrari Carano Dinner

IMG_1864by Andrew Chalk

I was fortunate to be a media guest at Ferré’s first wine dinner this weekend. The featured winery was California’s Ferrari-Carano and the guests enjoyed a set 5-course menu with matching wines in a private dining area of the downtown Fort Worth restaurant.

Pictures tell the story of the food below but check out the menu. Many of those wines are in such small supply a winemaker’s dinner is essentially the only way to get them short of going to the winery.
