Morgan’s in the desert invites you to join us for the season’s first Winemaker Dinner on Thursday, October 5, 2017, featuring renowned Napa Valley vintner Far Niente.
Far Niente Winery, founded in Oakville, California in 1885 by John Benson — a California gold rush forty-niner and uncle of American impressionist painter, Winslow Homer – is today consistently recognized as a benchmark producer of Napa Valley Chardonnay and Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
A full dinner menu will be served, artfully curated by Executive Chef Jae Ho Bang, with the evening’s wine selections perfectly paired with each course.
We look forward to sharing with you a memorable dining experience of fine wine, exceptional cuisine and “dolce far niente”.
