SEDONA: Jordan Vineyard Wine Dinner at Mariposa

  • Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill 700 Arizona 89A Sedona, AZ, 86336 United States (map)

Before moving to Sedona, Chef Lisa Dahl called Marin County, just outside of Sonoma’s Alexander Valley wine region, her home for many years. On Thursday, Nov. 3, Dahl will bring a little taste of home to her Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill when she hosts CEO John Jordan of the Jordan Vineyard and Winery for a five-course winemaker dinner.

The wines of Jordan are legendary and in 2016 they won the #1 spot for their Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Wine and Spirits Magazine. Modeled after first growth Bordeaux and after four decades of commitment, Jordan remains an elegant, food-friendly style of wine.

Limited seats are available and a quick sell-out is expected. The dinner will be held at Chef Dahl’s newest fine-dining restaurant, Mariposa Latin-Inspired Grill, which is nestled on a scenic bluff overlooking panoramic views of Sedona’s red rocks. Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016. 6:00 pm. $150++ per person. For reservations, call (928) 862-4444.
