Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar will celebrate the centuries-old art of wine blending with a unique event to be held at all 64 restaurant locations during the month of October. “Winemaker for a Night” will offer Fleming’s guests an opportunity to create their own personally blended wines using premium varietals from Raymond Vineyards, the award-winning winery in Rutherford, Napa Valley.

The event includes wine blending instruction and activities as well as generous food selections from Fleming’s Small Plates and Bar la Carte Menus served throughout the evening. “Winemaker for a Night” will take place on three different dates in Phoenix:

Tuesday, October 16

· Fleming’s North Scottsdale (DC Ranch) / 20753 N. Pima Rd., 480-538-8000

Friday, October 19

“Winemaker for a Night” will be a relaxed and entertaining event with no special wine knowledge required and a lively program of activities including:

An exclusive video introduction to blending from Jean-Charles Boisset, Proprietor of Boisset Family Estates, the dynamic wine world visionary behind the transformation of Raymond Vineyards, and Stephanie Putnam, Raymond’s Winemaker.

A rare tasting of barrel samples of three single varietals by Raymond Vineyards: Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, California Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 and Napa Valley Merlot 2011.

A hands-on blending session using Raymond Vineyards varietals, with personal coaching from the Wine Manager at each Fleming’s location.

Wine blends have never been more popular and for good reason – it allows wine makers to create layers of flavors and aromas that make the sum greater than its parts. “Blending is the most important and creative action that any winemaker engages in, and for me it’s the most exciting part of the winemaking process,” said Maeve Pesquera, Fleming’s Director of Wine. “Our “Winemaker for a Night” event will allow our guests to experience first hand the choices and outcomes that a winemaker encounters when blending a wine from different grape varietals and vineyard sources.”
