5 Course Paired Wine Dinner with Ironstone Vineyards and Brazos Valley Cheese
Join Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Brazos Valley Cheese, and the great grapes of Ironstone Vineyards for a terrific wine, cheese, and food pairing dinner in our private dining room overlooking the greenbelt.  Ironstone Vineyards, fourth generation growers and one of the ten largest family owned and operated wineries in the US, features the Christine Andrew, Leaping Horse, Sonoma Creek, and Ironstone Vineyards labels.  Included in the evening’s presentation are five current releases that display Ironstone’s rich fruit flavors, balance, and grace. Oh, yeah, and then there’s Jack’s food – making magic happen with incredibly fresh local produce, fresh Gulf caught seafood, and delightful cheeses from Brazos Valley Cheese. Jack will share background on each flight and course, including a discussion of Ironstone’s Sustainable Viticulture practices -  their time-honored and environmentally respectful approach to vineyard management. (Translated: they take great care of their piece of earth, which is really cool.)  Call 512.852.8558 or visit our website for reservations.
