Monday Funday Series Presents: David Arthur Wine Dinner
Monday, May 4th
6:30 - 10:00pm
 
The history of David Arthur Vineyards and the Long Family in the Napa Valley reaches back a half-century to the 1950s. At that time, Don Long began steadily investing in land on Pritchard Hill. He owned a small grocery business and had long been interested in the California wine industry. His vision and commitment to build a legacy and business for his family led to the acquisition of nearly 1,000 acres on the now famous Pritchard Hill.
Nearly two decades later, in the late 1970s, that vision came to fruition when his son David began planting vines on the property. Today, two generations work together to continue the family tradition at David Arthur Vineyards. With the release of the 2013 vintage, the Long Family celebrates 28 years of winemaking.    
Join ​us ​for ​an ​unforgettable ​evening ​with David Arthur Vineyards ​proprietor ​& ​vintner ​David ​Long.  Feast ​on ​a ​four-course farm-fresh ​menu ​prepared ​by ​the ​chefs ​at ​Ninety ​Acres, while you sip wines from this iconic estate.

Cocktail Making Class - Sours, Flips & Swizzles

1:30 - 3:30pm
A modern twist is taking something great and making it even better. Mixologists are always reinventing traditional cocktails. The still popular and time-honored families of mixed drinks include Sours, Flips and Swizzles. Oxford Dictionary can date the word “flip” as far back as 1695 to describe a mixture.
In this new and delicious cocktail class, our Ninety Acres Mixologists will use farm fresh ingredients to teach you easy ways to spice up your traditional drinks.
