SKU: 2023 Winemaker Dinner - Nonmember

Once a year we invite our most beloved RR supporters out to the ranch for an unparalleled culinary experience. We will enjoy cocktail-hour and canapes at the Upper Pond, set to the backdrop of sweeping vistas of the Santa Ynez Valley. Afterward we will mosey down to the barn to enjoy an exquisite three-course dinner created by our longtime friend and collaborator, Chef Jake O. Francis.

You will hear the story of Refugio Ranch from vintner and proprietor, Kevin Gleason, as well as learn about our terroir-driven winemaking methods from Head Winemaker, Max Marshak. This is an exclusive and once-a-year event. As an honored Refugio Ranch member, we invite you to join us.
