FAMILY VINEYARDS: THE FOCUS OF THE CRESCENT’S FOOD & WINE NIGHT 2017

(EUREKA SPRINGS, ARKANSAS) — The 2017 Eureka Springs Food & Wine Festival will debut November 9 in the Crystal Dining Room Restaurant of the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa.  The pièce de résistance for the evening will be, from that renowned Australian family vineyard, an eight ounce pour of Penfolds Grange 2000 Shiraz for $80.  The featured dinner entrée~wine pairing will be that same Penfolds Grange 2000 Shiraz with the Rack of Lamb for $100.

The evening begins at 5 o’clock for the Wine & Cheese Welcome Reception with a focus on such family vineyards as Penfolds, Duckhorn, Beringer, Bell, Kistler, Rodney Strong, Robert Mondavi, MacMurray, and Seghesio.  From 5 until 7, guests will enjoy representative wine samplings, artisan cheeses from around the world, and John Rainone at the piano.  Pricing for this event is $20 per person or $35 per couple.

Dinner seatings will be from 5 until 8 p.m.  Entrées range in price from $16 to $39.  Reservations for both events are recommended.

“One might note that when it comes to ‘family’ vineyards, there is not one that epitomizes family more than MacMurray,” stated Brian VanSickle, food and beverage director at the Crescent Hotel, “for this vineyard’s namesake is none other than Fred MacMurray the actor, probably best known for his role as the father in the television show ‘My Three Sons’.”
