Landmark Vineyards Winemaker Dinner @ Max Downtown

Landmark-&-Justin-at-Downtown-2 copy

Max Downtown presents a very special event featuring 

The Wines of Landmark Vineyards & Justin Winery 

With Guest Speaker, Greg Stach, Winemaker, Landmark Vineyards

Landmark uses the most time and labor-intensive techniques to produce our wines. Grapes are aged in French oak barrels, where naturally occuring wild yeasts ferment the juice. This creates complex, aromatic wines with deep, expressive flavors. Rooted in a rich history of agriculture, Landmark Vineyards is founded by a group that includes Damaris Deere Ford, great-great-granddaughter of John Deere, inventor of the first steel plow.

With cuisine by Executive Chef Chris Sheehan
& wine pairings by Max Downtown Wine Director Justin Gavry
& Max Restaurant Group Beverage Director Brian Mitchell.
