What

Morton’s The Steakhouse Back Bay invites wine enthusiasts to dine and drink with one of the country’s foremost winemakers, Peter Mondavi Jr. of Charles Krug Winery.  Known for its extensive, award-winning wine list, Morton’s has cultivated relationships with some of the leading domestic wineries.  The Winemaker Dinners offer guests a glimpse into the inner-workings of these vineyards, as well as an interactive experience with the winemakers themselves. 

Hailing from Napa Valley’s first family of winemaking, Peter Mondavi Jr. was introduced to the process at a young age and quickly became versed in the world of wines.  In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Charles Krug Winery, third generation proprietor Peter explores some of the estate’s finest vintages, including the 1980 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection.  Located in the heart of Napa Valley, the famed Charles Krug is home to super-premium and reserve wines made with estate-grown, sustainably farmed fruit representing the region’s most prized sub-appellations.
