LOCATION: Sonoma County Weekend
Twenty couples will join Sonoma County’s world-class winemakers for an unforgettable weekend! Dan Kosta of AldenAlli Winery, Mark McWilliams of Arista Winery, Mike Haney of Black Dog Cellars, Jake Bilbro of Limerick Lane Cellars, Clay Mauritson of Mauritson Wines, Rich Aurilia of Red Stitch Wines and Mike “Chi Chi” Thompson of Thompson 31Fifty Wines have once again teamed up to cook for and represent their celebrated and award-winning BBQ Team “Armed & Hammered” for a memorable weekend of wine and food experiences!
Team “Armed & Hammered” was founded at a BBQ rib competition among friends along the Gulf Coast fourteen years ago. That very event has now grown into an exceptional wine and food celebration benefiting The Emeril Lagasse Foundation and Team. In turn, “Armed & Hammered” has built a reputation for great food, entertaining presentation and of course, stellar Sonoma County wines!
Kick your weekend off! Tour the historic Rockpile Ridge Vineyard, taste critically-acclaimed wines and enjoy authentic, slow-cooked Carnitas, made by the Mauritson Wines staff, with Clay Mauritson. Meet with Team “Armed & Hammered” at Limerick Lane Cellars for a crawfish boil reception and dinner on Friday night. Take in the exceptional view at Thompson 31Fifty Wines for a wine tasting and lunch Saturday.
Top off the weekend! Saturday evening’s “BBQ Ribs Throwdown” at Arista Winery is guaranteed to be a memorable evening as it will bring together the absolute very best in wine, food, music and fun featuring the culinary talents, entertainment and of course world-class wines of Team “Armed & Hammered”! Oh and with these guys… there is always a surprise or two as well!
