Cruise with Kurt and Christine Chef Kurt Grasing on a sojourn on the enticing Douro

July 18-25, 2017


Past Event: We invite you to join us for an evening to learn about two exotic cruise itineraries. Meet with renowned photographer Tom O’Neal and learn about his upcoming trip to Galapagos Islands National Park in Ecuador, and with Chef Kurt Grasing, who will be sailing on the Douro River in Portugal.

Both cruises  are all-inclusive and on small ships (about 100 people) and will sell out quickly. Galapagos is a bucket list destination for many people, and with Silversea’s luxurious Silver Galapagos dedicated to the area, there has never been a more comfortable time to go.
The Douro Valley of Portugal is a hidden gem that has long been ignored by Americans, and is beginning to garner great respect as a travel experience.

Reception begins at 6PM on Tuesday, January 17 with a short presentation. We invite you to stay on at Grasing’s for a prix-fixe dinner following.

Founded 150 years ago by Eleuterio Martinez Arzok, Grupo Faustino has excelled in balancing tradition and modernity over the past decades.

Well aware of the responsibility of being the oldest producer of table wine and Setúbal Moscatel in Portugal, José Maria da Fonseca follows a philosophy of permanent development, constantly investing in research and production, combining the latest techniques with traditional know-how. An example of this is the José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes Winery, at Reguengos de Monsaraz, Alentejo, where the Roman tradition of clay pot fermentation is maintained alongside the latest technology.

Past Event – Grasing’s Wine Club Presents an Evening with Krug Champagne

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Grasing’s Restaurant in Carmel, CA is delighted to announce a very special dinner featuring wines from Krug Champagne on Tuesday, June 14, 2016.

The story of the House of Krug illustrates the amazing adventure of its founder, Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to offer the very best Champagne every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, as well as building an extensive library of reserve wines from many different years allowed Joseph Krug to fulfill his dream. With a very original approach to Champagne making, he decided to go beyond the notion of vintage to create the fullest expression of Champagne every year. Thus, he founded a House in which all Champagnes are of the same level of distinction, each illustrating a particular expression of Nature. Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have perpetuated this dream, enriching the founder’s vision and savoir faire.

Cameron Christie, Champagne Specialist at Moet-Hennessy Champagnes will be in attendance to discuss the selected wines.

The reception will begin at 6:00pm with a five course dinner following at 6:30pm. The price for this unique opportunity is $195.00 per person and includes all wines, taxes and gratuity.

Guests will be able to purchase bottles of the presented wines in addition to special Krug selections from the Grasing’s Cellar at this event and Grasing’s Wine Club members will receive special pricing on these wines.
