Chad Clevenger, exec chef/owner of Mel's Bar and Grill, 5960 South Holly Street, is hosting a five-course winemaker dinner tonight with Daryl Groom, the former chief winemaker of Penfolds and Geyser Peak, who's now representing and making his signature private label, Groom.
Groom focuses on three main varietals: sauvignon blanc, shiraz and zinfandel, all of which will be featured tonight, along with "The Proposition," a sparkling wine from Hesketh, a small-production winery from Australia, as well as Meyer Family Cellars port, which comes from the same family who produces Silver Oak wines.
The price is $49 per person, excluding tax and gratuity, and reservations are required; dial 303-777-8223 to book your seat.
