Café Luna and Madroña’s Zinfandel Dinner Menu

If you happen to be quick enough (or lucky enough) to get one of the tickets to our Zinfandel Winemaker Dinners at Café Luna, you have already (or will be) experiencing this exceptional dinner. However, if you didn’t secure your ticket to this multi-course Zinfandel extravaganza, we thought you might like to see what the pairings are.

Before jumping into the menu, I must say that David and Gary at Café Luna were responsible for an amazing evening (for the May 6th dinner). The small intimate restaurant was beautiful, with separate glasses for every single wine and course. The restaurant was alive with energy, and everyone seemed to be excited about the evening. And the foods were truly outstanding! The general consensus was that all of these recipes should be added to the daily menu, and we all left just a hint fatter and whole lot happier!

Enjoy the menu!
