Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club lands prestigious winemaker dinners

The Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club is bringing top-rated wineries Peter Michael and Kosta Browne to Rancho Santa Fe for exclusive winemaker dinners on May 7 and June 25.

The wine dinner series will pair some of the finest wine selections with cuisine from Executive Chef Brian Freerksen. Both evenings will begin at 6 p.m. with a reception, followed by a four-course dinner.

According to RSF Golf Club Manager Al Castro, the wine committee at the club has been working on bringing both wineries to the Ranch for the past 18 months.

The May 7 Peter Michael Winery dinner will feature Paul Michael, son of winery founder Sir Peter Michael.

Peter Michael’s cabernet sauvignon blend Les Pavots and estate chardonnays such as La Carriére and Ma Belle-Fille routinely earn top ratings from Wine Spectator. More recently, Peter Michael’s pinot noirs from the Sonoma Coast, such as Le Caprice and Clos du Ciel, have been successful.

The June 25 dinner with Kosta Browne will feature winemaker and winery founder Michael Browne.

Kosta Browne has emerged as one of California’s top pinot noir producers and has earned top reviews from Wine Spectator. Their intensely flavored and balanced wines come from the finest regions in California.

Seating is very limited for both events. For reservations, call 858-756-1182.
