In honor of its 40th anniversary, Morton’s The Steakhouse is hosting A Taste of Two Legends, a once-in-a-lifetime celebration alongside Napa Valley’s most revered wine making family, The Mondavis. On Saturday, October 27, loyal patrons and wine aficionados are invited to enjoy an unparalleled dining experience complete with a six-course, chef-curated menu paired with rare, world-class wines from four Mondavi generations, including exclusive library wines and new family projects not available to the public anywhere else.
“Morton’s is one of the most distinguished steakhouses in the country,” said Tim Whitlock, COO Morton’s The Steakhouse. “We are thrilled to partner with a powerhouse, the Mondavi family, to celebrate 40 fantastic years with our amazing customers.”
Tylor Field, III, Divisional VP of Wine and Spirits for Morton’s The Steakhouse, and the Mondavi Family will lead a discussion about the rare wines.
A Taste of Two Legends will feature a once in a lifetime Melchoir bottle (18 liters) of the 2016 Ancora Insieme crafted by 3rd and 4th generation members of the Mondavi family including Tim Mondavi, Peter Mondavi Jr., Marc Mondavi, Rob Mondavi, Jr. and Angelina Mondavi. Each facet brought to the table composites from their family properties located on Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill, and the Valley Floor to create an intensely intricate proprietary Bordeaux red blend. The family named this wine Ancora Insieme, which means “Still Together.” Ancora Insieme is a monumental blend that encompasses both the original and modern winemaking philosophy of Napa Valley. It is best described as structured, balanced, and full-bodied with a mouthfeel that is supple and elegant. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley will auction off this one-of-a-kind bottle on the evening of the 27th with all proceeds going to their organizations. All guests attending A Taste of Two Legends nationwide will have the ability to bid on this exclusive item.
In addition to the exceptional wines, guests will enjoy a decadent meal including a reception of hors d’oeuvres, seafood course, amuse bouche, beef course, cheese course, and dessert. A Taste of Two Legends will be offered at 48 Morton’s locations nationwide. For tickets and information, please visit mortons.com.
