Newport Grill’s wine dinner: Eight courses, 16 wines, lots of competition

Newport Grill’s Iron Sommelier dinner will feature four local wine experts battling to see who can create the best wine pairings. The dinner will feature eight courses and 16 wines.

I’m told that Aaron Whitcomb, Newport Grill’s Denver-based executive chef, will be in town for the event.

Attendees will vote on the best pairings. The event is at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Newport Grill, 1900 N. Rock Road, and costs $125 a person. For reservations, call 316-636-9555.

Check out the menu for the evening… but only if you can handle getting very, very hungry.
