“We’re excited to offer an evening with Mike and Sequoia Grove for our Arrowhead Grill patrons,” said Chef Charles Wade Schwerd, owner of Arrowhead Grill. “The wines he's hand selected are some of the finest – and exclusive – that Sequoia Grove offers.”

For the first course, a Sequoia Grove Sauvignon Blanc will be served with Chef Charles’ seafood salad, which consists of shrimp, scallops, calamari, mussels, kalamata olives, crab, lobster and octopus.

The Arrowhead Grill second course of roasted beet salad (red and yellow roasted beets, herd goat cheese and bitter greens with flower garnish) will be served with a Sequoia Grove 2009 Carneros Chardonnay.
