We’re honored that our 2014 East Bench Zinfandel was selected to be served at the last state dinner of the Obama administration, on the evening of October 18th, 2016 at the White House. How cool is that?

Celebrity chef Mario Batali will be collaborating with White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford and White House Executive Pastry Chef Susan Morrison, to turn out a four course meal with our 2014 East Bench paired alongside the main course of a Beef Braciola Pinwheel with Horseradish Gremolata and Broccoli Rabe.

Here are some links to more information regarding the dinner and our wine. We were even able to track down the recipe for the beef braciola dish that will be served with the East Bench!
