Both Morton’s The Steakhouse and the Napa Valley winemaking family Mondavi are celebrating significant milestones. Morton’s turns 40 this year; its first location opened in Chicago in 1978. The chain, owned by Landry’s, now boasts 80 locations worldwide.
2018 also marks 75 years since Italian immigrants Cesare and Rosa Mondavi purchased the historic Charles Krug property. Charles Krug is the oldest winery in the Napa Valley and the longest-running tasting room in California. The Mondavi family is now welcoming members of the fourth generation to the business.
The two companies are joining forces for A Taste of Two Legends on Oct. 27 at the historic Carriage House at the Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley. The event was scheduled to feature six decadent courses paired with wines from four Mondavi generations, including Charles Krug’s exclusive library wines and new projects not available to the public anywhere else.
Tylor Field, divisional vice president of wine and spirits for Morton’s The Steakhouse, along with Charles Krug co-proprietors Peter Mondavi Jr. and Marc Mondavi, will lead a discussion about the rare wines. In conjunction with the Napa Valley celebration, 48 Morton’s locations nationwide will also offer A Taste of Two Legends dinner events, priced at $295 per person.
