Dinner in the Vineyard - Surf & Turf

  • Fernwood Cellars Winery 7137 Redwood Retreat Rd Gilroy, CA, 95020 United States (map)

Dear Friends of Fernwood,
We would like to invite you to a unique culinary event and experience at the winery. Our last Dinner in the Vineyard for the year as we enter into fall/winter will be a fabulous Surf & Turf themed menu prepared by Jeff Raby from Fire for Hire. We are excited to have Jeff fire up his grill and deliver a hearty and tasty meal paired exclusively with wine selections from me. A few deeper cuts are bound to show up as I tend to to spoil guests with rare and unique wines from the library. The vineyard setting and colors should be spectacular as we ease our way into harvest.  Be sure to bring your camera for some amazing photo ops!

Looking forward to sharing great conversation with amazing wine & food among friends. 
Cheers, Matt Oetinger
