ATTENTION DALLAS!!!


So excited to tell you about the Davis Family Vineyards dinner next Monday night! KRLD Newsradio 1080 has invited Guy Davis to host a fabulous evening at the Screen Door located in One Arts Plaza downtown Dallas...details below:

The KRLD Dinner Club will showcase the best that the North Texas wine and culinary scenes have to offer.
 
Guy Davis, the founder and winemaker of Davis Family Vineyards will be the guest of honor for the first event and will showcase his wines as only he can.  Be prepared, he is clearly passionate about his wines!
 
This event will be held on Monday, March 30. at the Screen Door from 7:00 - 9:30 pm. $125 per person (includes tax and gratuity). Space limited to 95 guests.

Featuring the culinary creations of Chef Fitzgerald Dodd, Screen Door and delicious tastes of Davis Family Vineyards with Guy Davis.

Guy Davis believes wine should be a natural expression of a specific place, the personality of a particular, carefully tended plot of earth that reveals the mood of Mother Nature in an individual year. This means special attention is given to everything. Vineyard locations must have perfect soil, exposures to the sun, and microclimates for world-class wine growing. Varietals must match ideally with each individual site, and then special attention is paid to the selection of clones and rootstalk. Above all else, they harvest at ripeness...that perfect balance of sugar, acidity, pH and, most importantly, maturity of flavors and tannins.

At Davis Family Vineyards, they have some pretty strong beliefs about wine. They believe wine is an essential element in a rich and passionate life. Guy says that wine adds an extra layer of flavors to both meals and to friendships. And like a lover, wine has a sensuality of perfumed aromas and silky, supple textures, endless charm and character that brings many pleasures to our senses and our spirits!

The atmosphere of Screen Door is reminiscent of "The Great Room" in a Southern mansion of days gone by.  Along with rich woods, luminous chandeliers, signature china, and custom uniformed waiters, this makes Screen Door the perfect place to present this fantastic Winemaker's Dinner. Executive Chef Fitzgerald Dodd's touts a "Then & Now" Southern menu concept. Here you'll find old friends that will take you back in time, as well as a new generation of dishes that think in fresh ways about Southern cuisine.  Housed in the new jewel of Downtown Dallas, One Arts Plaza, Screen Door is just steps away from the Performance Arts Center.
