Food 101 Morningside & Zaca Mesa Wine Pairing Dinner

I got the heads up on a really yummy wine pairing dinner that Food 101 Morningside is putting on next month:

"Food 101 Morningside is partnering with Zaca Mesa Winery & Vineyards (Santa Ynez Valley, CA) to feature a 5-course dinner paired with Zaca Mesa's award winning wines. Zaca Mesa is a Santa Ynez Valley estate winery dedicated to Rhone varieties. Since 1972, they have hand crafted wines from grapes grown in their vineyards to express their distinct character and genuine quality, offering you a unique experience to share. In 2007, Wine & Spirits named Zaca Mesa the Estate Winery of the year.

Chef Ron Eyester, Food 101, and Mike Ramsey, Zaca Mesa, will be presenting their dishes and wines. The dinner is only $65 for the 5 paired courses and is on Wednesday, March 4th at 7pm"

(Scroll down to see the menu for the night.)

I am going to be there and hope to see some Disposable Income readers there, as well!

As a thank you for coming, All DI readers (and ONLY DI readers) will be entered into a drawing for a free bottle of Zaca Mesa's Z3. Just be sure to mention that you heard about the dinner through Disposable Income when you call the restaurant (404.347.9747) to make reservations.
