Winter Park, FL--(August 3, 2017)-- Continuing the TasteMaker tradition, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is serving an exceptional five-course dining experience featuring the world's best Champagnes. Hosted exclusively at Ruth’s Chris Steak House locations across the nation on August 17 and 18, the dinner celebration will be the fifth in a series of acclaimed TasteMaker Dinners.

Guests will be served bubbling flutes of the finest champagnes from upscale and iconic brands such as Veuve Clicquot, Moët & Chandon, and Ruinart, as well as a sparkling wine from Domaine Chandon. The menu will feature Butternut Squash Ravioli & Sage Mascarpone Sauce, Black Truffle Soup, Medjool Date & Goat Cheese Salad, Petite Filet Mignon with Romesco Crust and Lemon Cheesecake & Toasted Walnut Crumbs. Each course will be coupled with a perfectly matched Champagne.

“It's not often that people get to try some of the world’s most elite and prestigious Champagnes all at one time and under the same roof,” said Abdiel Aleman, Vice President of Culinary Development for Ruth’s Chris Steak House. “To commemorate this special occasion, we’ve curated a special menu that features indulgent ingredients such as mascarpone cheese and black truffles.”

Prior to 1976, it was widely-believed that French wines were the best in the world. Therefore, when two, lesser-known Napa Valley wineries took home top prize for best white and red wines at a blind tasting event in Paris, it shocked and forever transformed the industry. One of those wines was Chateau Montelena’s 1973 Chardonnay.

“As we celebrate our win over 40 years ago, our family-owned and operated winery is more focused than ever on our Napa Valley Estate Cabernet,” said Brian Baker, VP of Sales and Marketing for Chateau Montelena. “This varietal accounts for almost two-thirds of our winery’s current annual production, furthering our founder Jim Barrett’s original dream of producing a First Growth California Cabernet Sauvignon. We’re delighted to share a rare library release of the 2006 Estate Cabernet for Ruth’s Chris guests around the country on this special evening.”

Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinner series was inspired by Ruth’s Chris Steak House founder, Ruth Fertel, who mortgaged her home more than 50 years ago to purchase her first restaurant. The single mother had no prior restaurant experience but was able to succeed because of her commitment to providing exceptional food and service to all of her guests. Each of the pairing partners for the TasteMaker dinners have stories that echo Fertel’s own fearless spirit of entrepreneurship and dedication to quality.

Reservations for Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinner with Chateau Montelena are now available at participating locations with additional dining experiences scheduled throughout the year featuring Moët Hennessy and Marchesi Antinori.
