Certified Angus Beef and Duckhorn wine featured at Oct. 29 dinner

October 1, 2014 | By Donna Leinwand Leger |

Enjoy amazing wines and top flight Certified Angus Beef at a multi-course dinner Oct. 29 at the Fourth Estate restaurant at the National Press Club.

The Second Annual Certified Angus Beef dinner pairs a variety of beef and seafood dishes with Duckhorn Vineyard's Napa Valley wines. Certified Angus Beef specialists and a Maryland rancher will be on hand to walk you through the courses along with a Duckhorn representative to explain the perfect pairings.

Last year's dinner sold out, so reservations are essential. The dinner is specially priced for National Press Club members. Be sure to sign into the Club website to get the special price.

The dinner will begin with cocktails and carefully curated hors d'oeuvres at 6:30 p.m. Four courses follow, including a surf and turf course featuring Certified Angus short ribs and mushroom risotto, and a main course of boneless Certified Angus Beef Prime Rib with Yukon Gold cheddar potatoes and sautéed fall greens with chestnuts. Don't worry: Dessert is beef-free.
