Winemaker’s Dinner supports Glenwood Springs arts center

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – A few tickets are still available for the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts summer fundraiser, A Winemaker’s Dinner, starting at 6 p.m. Friday, July 17, at Rivers Restaurant in Glenwood Springs.

Tickets are $75 at the Center for the Arts on Sixth Street, or by calling 945-2414.

The evening will include organic wine provided by Jack Rabbit Hill Winery, paired with a gourmet five-course meal, featuring a main entree of grilled fillet mignon with sun dried cherry cabernet sauce, wasabi mashed potatoes and paired with Bard Red Organic Meritage.

Acclaimed Chef Mike Schlicher and his Rivers Restaurant team will prepare the meal. Schlicher was formally trained at Johnson and Wales University in Providence, R.I. He has been at the Rivers Restaurant for 14 years.

“This is a first for the Center for the Arts, and a rare occasion when a vineyard comes to a restaurant and pairs each wine, perfectly, with gourmet cuisine,” said Mannya Holtam, president of the Glenwood Springs Arts Council.

The Jack Rabbit Hill Winery, a local USDA-certified organic winery in the West Elk region of Colorado, will provide the wine.
