Take “wine and dine” to a whole new level by reserving seats at one of Ruth’s Chris Steak House’s esteemed TasteMaker Dinners this year. The popular dinner series, available at all three Orlando-area locations, is returning for 2020 with a lineup of 10 can’t-miss dinners featuring wineries like Rombauer Vineyards, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Veuve Clicquot, The Prisoner Wine Company and more.
Each dining event features sips from a top-notch winery paired with a five-course menu specially crafted for the evening by the Ruth’s Chris culinary team.
This year’s lineup includes Rombauer Vineyards, Justin Winery, Grgich Hills Estate, Cakebread Cellars, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Orin Swift Cellars, Veuve Clicquot, and Caymus Vineyards.
