Frank Family Wine Dinner a Hit!

The Frank Family Wine Dinner, held on the evening of September 27, was a sellout success! The much anticipated dinner was hosted during Farm-to-Fork week, so naturally the brilliant Deneb Williams, executive chef at The Firehouse Restaurant expertly prepared a special seven-course farm-to-fork dinner paired with Frank Family wines.

013As guests were seated and getting settled, Chef Williams thoroughly described the seven-course meal and wine pairings guests would be enjoying. Then, Edward Skupien, the wineries Vice President of California and Asia sales, educated The Firehouse guests on award-winning Frank Family Wine as they dined on their delicious seven-course meal. Rich Frank became a co-owner of what is now Frank Family Wines, and assumed full ownership in 2007. The winery, Skupien explained, produces Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, and several Cabernet Sauvignons, many of which were sampled during the dinner.

The guests began with hors d’oeuvres including Watanabe Farms heirloom tomato croustade paired 023with 2008 Frank Family Blanc de Noirs, and finished with Del Rio Botanical fried figs served with Frank Family Zinfandel Port. Guests were then able to relax with artisanal cheeses from North Valley Farms in The Firehouse’s acclaimed wine cellar.

Between Chef Williams’ professionalism and knowledge of each course, Skupien’s education-laced yet entertaining talk about Frank Family Wines, and Manager Mario Ortiz’s exemplary service, the night was enjoyed by all who attended. The Firehouse strives to give patrons the best and most unique experience possible, and they didn’t disappoint!
