Allow us to take you on an unforgettable journey of food and wine with our signature dinner series PAIRINGS. Set oceanfront at the beachhouse at the moana, each PAIRINGS dinner will feature a celebrity winemaker, brewmaster or master distiller to proudly present their craft while sharing their passion and inspiration behind the art of making wine.
Moana Surfrider's Chef de Cuisine David Lukela and Executive Pastry Chef Nanako Perez-Nava will prepare five complementary dishes to match wine as a perfect pair.
Grgich Hills Estate
Wednesday, June 7
6:30PM - 9:00PM
Featuring world-renowed Grgich Hills Estate from Napa, most known for their exquisite and richly complex signature chardonnays. Founder Mike Grgich, 2008 Vinters Hall of Famer, is the notable winemaker behind the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that bested several white Burgundy wines in the wine tasting event the Judgement of Pairs; a dramatized version of the story told in the 2008 film Bottle Shock. World leaders such as Presidents Reagan and Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II, and French President Francois Mitterrand chose Grgich Hills Estate wines to be served at state dinners.
The evening will be hosted by Carl Russo.
