Small Producer Winemakers' Dinner Series: Zsirai Live from Hungary with RGE RD - Take home & In-person dining options

About this event

Join us as we celebrate many of the world's outstanding family-owned, independent wine producers complimented by the cuisine of Edmonton's finest chefs. The Small Producer Live Online Winemakers’ Cyber Series will not just put you face-to-face (ie screen-to-screen) with some of the best wine producers in the world, the events will also highlight the importance of not just knowing where your food comes from, but also knowing where your wine comes from. We will share the stories of the people and the places and why these producers are so special. Space and wine packages are limited. Don’t miss these unique opportunities to connect with some of the world’s finest wine producers in a personal and intimate setting.

The history of wine in Hungary dates back to at least Roman times and there are records of extensive vineyards and high quality wines being produced throughout the region’s history. In more recent times under communism, quality was neglected, but since the fall of communism and over the past 30 years there has been renewed interest and investment and producers such as Zsirai are demonstrating that high quality and exciting wines are once again possible to grow. The Zsirai Winery covers the most important wine regions in Hungary and was founded in 2005 by the late Csaba Zsirai. It is now run by his daughters Petra and Kata and a small team who are carrying on and bringing to life Csaba’s dream of producing quality wines from Hungarian grape varieties. The wines are pure, elegant, complex and exciting and are bringing attention back to this historic region. Prepare to be amazed!

Don't miss this unique opportunity to connect with Zsirai’s Máté Csanaky live from Hungary via ZOOM and enjoy the wines paired with the outstanding cuisine of RGE RD chef/owner Blair Lebsack.

Guests will have the option to purchase tickets/packages for the event to either dine in the new private dining room at The Butchery by RGE RD or take home and enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Chef Blair and his award-winning culinary team are creating a dinner especially for this event.

Purchase one of the special Zsirai dine-in or take-home packages and receive an invitation to join Máté and Blair for an intimate event and Q&A beginning at 6pm MST. A limited number of Zsirai dinner packages are available.
