On Friday, April 7th, The Brick Restaurant & Bar in Park City invites guests 21 and over to join them for a 5-course winemaker’s dinner paired with wines from the Andrew Murray Vineyards and winery in Santa Ynez, California.
Murray is especially known for his Rhône style wines, stemming in part from spending time in the Rhône Valley as a teen. According to the winery, “Andrew Murray fell in love with the emerging Rhône varieties, Syrah and Viognier, in the late 1980’s while traveling through France’s Rhône Valley. Leaving his UC Berkeley paleontology studies behind, he pursued his new mistress, Syrah, with an internship in Australia. His three-month tryst evolved into a 15-month romance with the famed Australian Shiraz. Returning to the states, he earned a bachelor’s degree in viticulture and enology from UC Davis’ renowned wine program, then founded his eponymous Santa Ynez winery and vineyard. Andrew and his family were drawn to the natural beauty, climate, soils and topography of Santa Barbara County. It all reminded him of his travels through the Rhône Valley where he first fell in love with the notion of winegrowing while just a teenager.”
“Andrew’s focus and dedication to his craft have culminated in what Robert Parker, Jr. calls, ‘…one of the shining stars in the Santa Barbara firmament.’ This perennially youthful perfectionist has been named ‘Tastemaker of the Year’ by Food and Wine Magazine, as well as, ‘One of the most fearsome talents in food and wine.’ Still, despite myriad accolades, Andrew remains the same modest, approachable, contemplative man he was when he first embarked to Australia back in 1992. He is eternally committed to vinicultural ‘Kaizen’ – the unrelenting pursuit of continuous improvement.”
Andrew Murray will be in attendance at The Brick’s winemaker dinner to talk to guests about his wines, answer questions, and so on. This one-of-a-kind evening will sell out quickly, so make your reservations ASAP. Tickets are $195 per person and can be purchased on RESY by clicking here.
