This innovative wine dinner commemorates the late, great Henry Schuerman. Originally a baker by trade, Henry was the first pioneer in the greater Verde Valley to commercially cultivate grapes and make them into wine (believed to be Red Zinfandel). In addition to producing the Schuerman “Red Rock” wine, he also sold tens of thousands of pounds of grapes to immigrant families in the area for their own traditional winemaking. Henry was literally the father and founder of winemaking in our great valley and his name shall live on in this annual feast held in his honor.
This wine pairing menu will be inspired by the authentic recipes being served in the Schuerman’s pre-prohibition household!
Join us for a spectacular night featuring 5 Celebrity Chefs, 5 Local Wineries and an amazing presentation by Henry Schuerman’s decedents.
We have discovered a copy of Henry Schuerman’s cookbook and all chefs will be pulling their inspiration from the authentic recipes being served in the Schuerman’s pre-prohibition household!
We will only have seating for 100 people so book early because this will sell out quickly.
