Wine Maker’s Dinner- Cancelled due to COVID-19

The 2019 Winemaker’s Dinner will be held at 6:30pm on Friday, September 27th at The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park’s Café 1230, spectacularly situated 1,230 feet above the Arkansas River.

The dinner, set up as a progressive food and wine tour, will feature nine different courses of the innovative Colorado cuisine of Executive Chef Beau Green. Each course has been paired with a specially selected, award winning Abbey wine crafted by winemaker Jeff Stultz.

This is the 17th year for the dinner and the 5th year it has been held at the Royal Gorge. Chef Green and winery owner Larry Oddo decided to let the people vote on the menu items that have been served over the last four years. They selected two of the most popular items in each category after conducting an online survey. Many participated in the survey, and the menu is truly a “Peoples Choice”.

Chef Green has maximized the use of Colorado produce, meats, fish, and cheeses in the creation of all his menus. Miso Trout, Black & Blue Bison Burger ,and the Cripsy Duck with Brown Butter Sage Gnocchi are all from Colorado. There are nine stations this year with two hors ‘dourves passed at the entrance. All the wines being served are made primarily from Colorado grapes.

The cost of the dinner is $125 per person, inclusive of tax and gratuity. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the winery at 719-276-5191. Transportation is available to and from Cañon City.
