Highly-ranked wines and top flight Certified Angus Beef top the menu 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.
