Madeira Party! A Dinner Celebrating a Complex & Historically Popular Wine

madeira2$45 / dinner
Special Dinner #73

Madeira, while not strictly American, was a staple beverage from as early as the colonial period of our nation’s history. (Thomas Jefferson loved it!) Madeira parties, very popular in the 19th century, are among the first documented wine tastings that occurred, allowing guests to sample from various vintages and note their flavor differences.

Join the Roadhouse as we explore the place that Madeira has played in our nation’s history, and taste some of the best examples around. James Beard finalist Manny Berk of the Rare Wine Company in California will be the special guest for this event. He’ll share his passion for this historically rich beverage. James Beard-nominated Chef Alex Young will craft a menu using Madeira throughout the meal.
