In the heart of Napa Valley, Caymus Vineyards and the Wagner family have been curating its two celebrated cabernet sauvignons — Napa Valley and Special Selection — since the early 1970s. Next month, locals will get a chance to try a sample during the exquisite Caymus Vineyards Wine Dinner, slated to make its way to Ruth’s Chris Steak House at Waterfront Plaza Oct. 20-21.

“We used to do it in big groups,” explains manager Don Asam. “But now, it’ll probably be no more than 12 or 14 people in the whole dinner.”

This, of course, ensures the fine-dining restaurant complies with all social distancing guidelines for guest and employee safety. The limited seating means reservations are required — call 599-3860 or visit ruthschris.com.

Kicking things off will be a seated reception, during which guests can sip on Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc.

The first course will consist of a Sweet Corn & Bacon Chopped Salad paired with a Mer Soleil “Reserve” Chardonnay from Santa Lucia Highlands in California.

Next up is a taste of the restaurant’s savory Veal Ravioli with baby spinach and veal demi-glace that’s served with Sea Sun Pinot Noir, also from the Sunshine State.

The main course — a Filet with Cremini Mushrooms (with potatoes au gratin and fresh broccoli) — is accompanied by the famous Napa Valley-produced Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon.

No meal at Ruth’s Chris Steak House would be complete without a decadent dessert to finish things off. Expect the restaurant’s famous Cheesecake with fresh berries and raspberry sauce for a sweet ending that you can pair with coffee or tea, if desired.
