Sexy Food: Tulalip Resort To Host Mondavi “Generations Dinner”

A wine and food party like no other — overflowing with Italian hospitality and history.

Looking for an excuse to beat the heat and Seafair crowds in Seattle this weekend? Cast your gaze no further than our friends to the North, Tulalip Casino. This Saturday night, Tulalip plays host to one of California’s greatest wine legends, Marc Mondavi. The Mondavi family have been making wine in Napa for three generations, and Marc plans to share some of that history with attendees of the evening picnic party, along with excellent summer fare.

The evening is coined “Generations Dinner,” and guest will get the opportunity to talk to the Mondavi’s while drinking Napa bottling selection wines that are so exclusive they’re not available outside California. Chef Pery Mascitti will pair the wines with upscale picnic fare that promises to be an alfresco wining and dining soiree like no other.

Marc, a third generation member of the legendary Mondavi wine clan, embraces a heritage filled with the importance of “family”.  Grandfather Cesare emigrated from Italy and built a lucrative grape and fruit shipping business, before purchasing the Charles Krug Winery in 1943.  At 60 years old he spearheaded a dramatic renaissance in the decade that followed, creating an enduring wine icon, while still maintaining it as a family winery.

During the evening, the generations will speak about their amazing heritage, the evening’s pours and carrying on the Mondavi legacy. It is no exaggeration to say that Marc’s four daughters were introduced to the wine industry at birth.

The Mondavi “Generations Dinner” will take place from 6 – 9 pm and is priced at $124 pp inclusive of gratuity (Brown Paper Tickets’ service fee and sales tax are extra).  For ticket purchase go to Brown Paper Tickets or call the Tulalip Banquet reservation phone line at (360) 716-6888.  Guests must be a minimum of 21 years to attend.
