Who hasn’t heard of the Mondavi Family of California? They were instrumental in making Napa Valley wines well known and enjoyed around the world. With this dinner at the Tulalip Resort Casino, you can rub shoulders with Marc Mondavi, try wines that you normally would not be able to get, and enjoy the incredible food from the Tulalip Resort Casino. I think that this would be a wonderful time to take your wine-loving spouse or friend and have a fun weekend enjoying wine, food, and a bit of gambling. Here is the announcement about the event. Enjoy!
Guests will get a chance to rub elbows with one of California’s legendary wine families — the Mondavi’s, at the third in a series of “Taste with Tommy” wine dinners. The “Generations Dinner” will be held Saturday, August 4th on the Orca Ballroom patio and is hosted by the Resort’s Sommelier Tommy Thompson. This outdoor summer soiree is firmly rooted in the family tradition of wine. Marc Mondavi and his daughters will pair their legendary Napa bottling selection (exclusive wines — not available outside of California) with Chef Perry Mascitti’s decadent picnic fare resulting in an alfresco wine and food party like no other — overflowing with Italian hospitality, history and multi-award winning wines.
Marc, a third generation member of the legendary Mondavi wine clan, embraces a heritage filled with the importance of “family”. Grandfather Cesare emigrated from Italy and built a lucrative grape and fruit shipping business, before purchasing the Charles Krug Winery in 1943. At 60 years old he spearheaded a dramatic renaissance in the decade that followed, creating an enduring wine icon, while still maintaining it as a family winery.
During the evening, the generations will speak about their amazing heritage, the evening’s pours and carrying on the Mondavi legacy. It is no exaggeration to say that Marc’s four daughters were introduced to the wine industry at birth!
The Mondavi “Generations Dinner” will take place from 6 – 9 pm and is priced at $124 pp inclusive of gratuity (Brown Paper Tickets’ service fee and sales tax are extra).
