Albert Bierstadt Exhibition Wine Dinner

Albert Bierstadt Exhibition Wine Dinner

Friday, November 16, 2018

6:00 p.m. – Exhibition Viewing
6:30 p.m. – Dinner, The Restaurant at Gilcrease

Join us for a special wine dinner featuring Ancien winemaker Ken Bernards and the exhibition Albert Bierstadt: Witness to a Changing West. Ancien wines are based on traditional winemaking that begins in the vineyard with rich soil and flavorful fruit. An emphasis on organic practices gives their wines a sense of place and is a perfect way to celebrate this exhibition and the American West. Gilcrease chef Lenny Borkowicz has created a four-course menu that pays homage to Bierstadt’s German heritage and is inspired by Bierstadt’s reverence for the natural landscape. This evening includes a prix fixe dinner, wine pairings and an after-hours viewing of our special exhibition.

Member price: $95/person
Non-member price: $115/person
Tax and Gratuity Included

About Ken Bernards
In 1992, Bernards made his first five barrels of Ancien Carneros Pinot Noir, marking the beginning of an ongoing quest for great Pinot Noirs. He has been living his dream making his own wines under the Ancien label since 1998. At Ancien, Bernards works exclusively with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Ken is the only winemaker to import grapes whole from France and then vinify them in California.
