Dallas Uncorked Harvest Dinner with David Beckstoffer of Kata Wine & Beckstoffer Vineyards
Join Dallas Uncorked November 13 as we welcome David Beckstoffer, President & CEO of the highly acclaimed Beckstoffer Vineyards in Napa Valley & owner of KATA Wines, for a special pairing dinner featuring his beautiful KATA wines from Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard in St. Helena.
David and his father, Andy Beckstoffer, have grown some of the most prized Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley from heritage vineyards, some dating back to the mid-1800's, for over 40 years.
In 2010 David took the leap of starting his own winery, bringing in one of the best to help him, Winemaker Benoit Touquette. In addition to his partnership with David, Benoit is the Winemaker for Realm, Jack Quin & Hartwell in Napa Valley, and owner of Fait Main & Teeter Totter.The duo are easily considered bright stars in the region, and country.
Once again for this event, honoring the year's vintage and seasonal bounty, we'll partner with our friend, Chef Abraham Salum at his Salum Restaurant for a perfectly paired feast to match the robust, bold flavors of KATA Wine, along with Touquette's Fait Main wine and a spacial sparkler from premium Napa Valley sparkling house, Domaine Carneros.
The evening will benefit two charities, The Stewpot, helping the homeless and at risk of Dallas for over 40 years, and the "We Over Me" Farm at Paul Quinn College.
The Stewpot is always one of our recipients of this dinner, as their selfless work transforms the lives of so many in need.
The"We Over Me" Farm is a new recipient that we are thrilled to be able to assist with this dinner.
Started in 2010, the “We Over Me” Farm began to transform the health and well-being of under-resourced communities in southern Dallas by providing fresh, healthy, affordable food options and by educating and empowering future generations to take better care of themselves, their environments, and their communities. The Farm has produced and provided more than 30,000 pounds of organic produce since its inception in March 2010, of which much is donated to neighborhood organizations.
In addition to providing fresh, healthy, affordable food options, the Farm strives to improve communities throughout the metroplex by providing hands-on educational experiences for youth and adults alike to promote healthy eating.
We look forward to welcoming David and seeing everyone in celebration of this year's harvest!
