Ram’s Gate Wine Dinner

February 20, 2018 7:00 PM until February 20, 2018 10:00 PM

Ram's Gate Wine Dinner with Estate Director Greg Miller

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 7pm


At Backstreet we love wine and our friends in wine country. 2017 was a rough year for those in California, but they survived as did the vineyards. It’s important that we help them on the path to recovery by celebrating their great wines. We are thrilled to host Ram’s Gate Estate Director Greg Miller on Tuesday, February 20th. Ram’s Gate is a young, but exceptional winery that emerged in 2011.  Located at the nexus of Carneros and Sonoma, this restaurant and winery exclusive property is brilliant. Their focus on small lot wines from exceptional vineyards is perfectly executed. In the last 3 years we’ve poured their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay by the glass to great response. They also dominated this year’s Houston Rodeo wine competition winning both the Reserve Grand Champion and Top Red.  We are thrilled to share their wines (including some winery exclusives) in the company of Greg’s immense knowledge and Chef Hugo’s fantastic food.  We hope you’ll join us!
