Middendorf’s introduces their new and exciting "Partake" event series at Middendorf’s Slidell featuring delectable cuisine paired with fine wine and spirits.

For the debut event, they welcome Jason Johnson from The Duckhorn Portfolio, a premier producer of California wines. He will showcase Decoy Limited, a tier of limited-production wines made from special lots sourced from California’s most prestigious wine regions. The limited lineup is touted as the pinnacle of Decoy wine-making.

Throughout the evening, you will have the opportunity to sip and savor these wines while discovering all the fine details that make each one truly special. It’s an experience, an adventure for everyone from the self-proclaimed lover of wine to the true connoisseur.

Each wine has been carefully selected to compliment a four course gourmet meal prepared by European Master Chef Horst Pfeifer, current owner of Middendorf’s Seafood Restaurant and former owner of Bella Luna, a fine dining restaurant in the French Quarter. Chef Pfeifer is eager to return to his gourmet roots.
