         Wine and Dine at Giants of the Savanna on April 8 

Enjoy fine wines paired with an outstanding dinner while watching the sun set over the African savanna, just five minutes from Downtown Dallas. Guests will sip highly-rated wines of Siduri Wines and Novy Family Winery paired with a five-course meal prepared by the Dallas Zoo’s Executive Chef Dan Bevis and hosted by the Dallas Zoological Society. The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a reception and hors d’oeuvres at the Dallas Zoo’s Simmons Safari Base Camp on Monday, April 8. The seated dinner begins at 7 p.m. Cost is $150 per person with valet parking, taxes, and service charges included.

Adam Lee, winemaker and co-owner of Siduri Wines and Novy Family Winery, will talk about his family’s wines, including some of the finest pinot noir and syrah produced in California.  Robert M. Parker Jr, wine critic and founder of The Wine Advocate, refers to Siduri as being “one of California’s best pinot noir producers,” and “one of my favorite wineries.”

“We’re always looking for different ways to create memorable experiences at the Zoo,” said Michael L. Meadows, president and CEO of Dallas Zoological Society. “This is the only place in town where guests can enjoy a fine dining experience while watching African wildlife roam nearby. Enjoying a winemaker’s dinner overlooking our Giants of the Savanna exhibit is something only a few people get to experience every year. It is very special.”

Space is very limited. For reservations, contact Toney Woodard at ToneyWoodard@kmssa.com or call 469.554.7470. The event will take place rain or shine. In the event of rain, the winemaker dinner will be moved to the Dallas Zoo’s Flamingo Room.
