On September 25 and 26, Frank Family Vineyards will host two unforgettable wine dinners as part of the 2020 Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta(SFWC) in partnership with Terra, Snake River Farms and Big Green Egg at the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado. Both in-person dinners will be hosted by brand ambassador Kelly Kerrigan of Frank Family Vineyards at the Terra sunset terrace, where Executive Chef Kai Autenrieth will join forces with featured guest chef Jack Arnold, Big Green Egg’s official pitmaster, to serve up an inventive “northern New Mexico meets BBQ fusion” menu. Frank Family will present wines for each course, impeccably paired to complement each dish. Those interested in attending can make a reservation by calling Terra at Four Seasons, (505) 946-5800.
The dinners will be hosted in-person. For those who would like to participate in the Fiesta virtually, there will be a series of live tastings September 23-26 and an online auction which begins at 12 p.m. MT on September 18 and culminates in a live close on September 25 at 6:45 p.m. MT.
