We're planning ahead at Dallas Uncorked in anticipation for what we know will be one of the most incredible dinners we have done. June 5 we will celebrate our 13th anniversary at Suze Restaurant with rising Napa Valley star, Winemaker Julien Fayard.

In addition to his own winery in Coombsville, Covert, a small production operation created with his wife, Elan, along with two other wine loving families, Cal and Pam Nicholson, owners of Nicholson Jones Winery, and Dave and Laura Nestor, Julien is the winemaker or consulting winemaker for a dozen others, including Purlieu, Sire, Azur, and Caspar.

The evening will feature a selection of Julien's wines from throughout Napa, paired perfectly with Suze Chef/Owner, Gilbert Garza's, seasonally focused cuisine. Julien will join us for this special night, sharing his story and adventures in wine in both his native France and California.

Wine & Film, The Perfect Pairing with Gary Cogill - 88th Annual Academy Awards Preview

A glass of wine and a great movie go hand in hand, we think it is the perfect pairing. And now is the best time of year to enjoy both as theaters are filled with Academy Award contenders, and wineries all over the world have their new releases on the shelves ready for enjoyment.

Dallas Uncorked wants to help with this enjoyment by throwing our 2nd annual happy hour wine and movie night with major motion picture film producer, long time film critic (now with KXAS-TV/NBC5) Gary Cogill at Veritas Wine Bar on February 21 from 6pm-8pm.

Gary will lead guests on an interactive discussion of what to see, what not to, and mainly, what is sure to win this year's "Oscar" for all of your favorite film catergories. Gary will also share some of his favorite stories of being on the set working with actors like Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman, and of course favorite stories of the 30+ years of being in the business and interviewing almost every actor in the world.

The night will benefit The Dallas Film Society, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting film, filmmakers and film education through annual events, like the Dallas International Film Festival and The Art of Film, as well as Charity:Water, bringing clean water to those in need around the world.

Each ticket will include two glasses of wine, a sparkling wine toast and light appetizers. Additional wine will be available all night at special happy hour prices. We will also have a limited and exclusvie live auction of film focused items to help our donation make that much more of an impact.

Tickets are $40 each and available here. This event sold out fast last year so don't delay in getting your tickets early. We look forward to seeing you there.

Dallas Uncorked annual Harvest Dinner with Pali Wines and Salum, benefiting New Friends New Life

Please join Dallas Uncorked on October 11 as we partner with Pail Wines and Salum Restaurant for our annual Harvest Dinner, this year benefiting New Friends New Life.

We are honored to celebrate the fall season with the exquisite wines from Pali Winery, featuring a selection of their single vineyard, premium Pinot Noir wines from some of the finest vineyard sites in Northern California. Each selection will be paired with the imaginative, seasonal and always delicious creations of our friend Chef Abraham Salum at his Salum Restaurant in the heart of Dallas. We are equally as honored to donate the proceeds from this year's event to a charity we truly admire and appreciate, New Friends New Life.

Started in 1998, "New Friends New Life restores and empowers formerly trafficked girls and sexually exploited women and their children. By providing access to education, job training, interim financial assistance, mental health and spiritual support, New Friends New Life helps women and their children overcome backgrounds of abuse, addiction, poverty and limited opportunities."

I wish this reality wasn't true, but Dallas ranks amongst one of the highest percentages of trafficked girls and women. To be able to help New Friends New Life in supporting their incredible work is crucial in changing these statistics in our city.

A small portion of the evenings proceeds will also benefit The Stewpot. Each year this annual event gives a donation to The Stewpot as their work with the homeless of Dallas is crucial in helping change the lives of those so much in need. Though working with The Bridge to provide meals, as well as education, job assistance, healthcare, etc. The Stewpot is a treasure to our city and one we are always so proud to support.

My dear friend, Ginger Dollins of Pali Wines, and a great supporter of the kind of work NFNL does, will be on hand at the dinner to discuss each of her luxurious wines. Katie Pedigo with New Friends New Life will also be joining us.

Dallas Uncorked is a 501c3 not for profit organization.

Tickets available here.
