A social evening of excellent steak and over a $10,000 worth of perfectly curated, professional Sommelier selected Cabernets.

Delicious, Social, Educational, Fabulous


This dinner will target 21 guests (when sold out) and will feature a multi-course steak dinner with dessert.

We will open and taste at least 21 wines(one bottle per guest) at this fantastic Cabernet based dinner. Guests will try over $6,000 worth of retail wine and over $10,000 worth at restaurant value. We will pour 3 wines at a time, we’ll vote for which wine we prefer, then we will unveil each blind wine. This is the patented LearnAboutWine Cabernet Challenge Dinner, it is fast, fun, and amazing! We tell you what the wines are, but not the order they are served in! 

Learn about the future of Cabernet, lean into the past, and see what the smaller top producers are doing to this amazing industry. The event is paired with a multi-course steak dinner provided by Jar restaurant with the legendary Chef Suzanne Tracht.

✦ About Chef Suzanne Tracht ✦

A driving force in the Los Angeles culinary scene, Suzanne Tracht has built JAR into one of the most beloved and successful restaurants in Los Angeles. Drawing inspiration from classic American comfort cuisine, JAR is a pilgrimage for passionate eaters and wine lovers from across the country. Opening in 2001 with the help of her longtime Chef de Cuisine Preech Narkthong, Tracht's modern American chophouse continues to receive acclaim for its atmospheric setting and exceptional steaks, braises, and seasonal sides—including her sumptuous signature pot roast, which along with her char siu pork has been cited by culinary heavyweights on the Food Network’s popular series The Best Thing I Ever Ate as worthy of the show’s title.
