Live Fire BBQ Dinner with Pitmaster Jack Arnold

Frank Family Vineyards is excited to host a tong-flipping, finger-licking live fire Barbecue dinner with Backyard Pitmaster Jack Arnold and celebrity Chef Christina Machamer on June 17 from 6:00 p.m.–8:30 p.m. BBQ Specialist Arnold will fire up the main course on the Big Green Egg, while Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen season four winner Chef Machamer will prepare elevated comfort-food style appetizers, side dishes and dessert.

The intimate event, hosted by Founders Rich and Leslie Frank and Winemaker Todd Graff on Frank Family Member’s Lawn, will be paired with Frank Family Cabernets, Zinfandel, and more. This lively dinner will allow each guest an opportunity to experience larger-than-life grilling demonstrations and musical entertainment in a stunning vineyard-side setting. Tickets can be purchased here.

 “My father, Hy Frank a World War II veteran and our family patriarch, was a wholesale meatpacker in Brooklyn and provided for me to be the first person in our family to attend University. He instilled a love of grilling in me, and so it has always been a part of the Frank Family culture,” says Founder Rich Frank. “We remember my father with our exclusive Patriarch Cabernet Sauvignon and will definitely be raising a glass as we celebrate Father’s Day weekend with such esteemed chefs.”

Arnold is one of the most highly rated BBQ specialists and backyard pitmasters in the country and Machamer rose to prominence after winning Season Four of FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen where she was awarded the position of executive sous chef at Restaurant Gordan Ramsay and worked side-by-side with Ramsay himself. The two will be presenting a stellar menu with a main course consisting of Kow Steaks American Wagyu filet, Southside Market & Barbecue jalapeño cheddar smoked sausage and Golden Steer Maine lobster tail. The full menu can be viewed here.

The fun continues throughout the weekend at the newly opened Four Season’s Napa Valley TRUSS Restaurant + Bar where Arnold will be hosting additional Father’s Day events on June 18 and June 19. Frank Family Vineyards will serve as the official winery partner, pouring our 2020 Carneros Chardonnay, 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2015 Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine. Reservations can be made here.
