Celebrating Women Winemakers

Once upon a time, the world of wine was dominated by men. That story’s not so true anymore. This month, Fleming’s Steakhouse and Wine Bar is celebrating women winemakers–who are producing some of the top bottles in the world–with exclusive four-course dinners.

The first dinner takes place Tuesday, Oct. 19, at the Scottsdale (6333 N. Scottsdale Rd., 480.596.8265) and DC Ranch (20753 N. Pima Rd. , 480.538.8000) locations while Chandler (905 N. 54th St., 480.940.1900) and Peoria (9712 W. Northern Ave., 623.772.9463) will host on Friday, Oct. 22. The dinners are $95 per guest, plus tax and gratuity.
