Switchback Ridge Wine Dinner with owner Kelly Peterson
and Guest Chef Matt Fern
Thursday, May 18, 2023
At a private home near Taylor's Wine Shop in North Raleigh
$120.00 per person, all-inclusive

Switchback Ridge produces some of Taylor's Wine Shop's favorite wines from their beautiful Peterson Vineyard property in Calistoga. Kelly Peterson founded Switchback Ridge in 1999 with the dream of continuing her family’s legacy that began with her great-grandparents over 100 years ago.  When he was a boy, Kelly's father, John Peterson, helped plant a special vineyard of Petite Sirah that is still producing wine today.  Kelly grew up in Calistoga and spent most of her childhood on the family's vineyard.   Above all she is most proud of her daughter, Ashley, who joined the company in 2015 and her son, Devon, who is currently studying viticulture and enology. With the future of Switchback Ridge in good hands, she looks forward to focusing on her most recent and cherished role as “Mimi” to her granddaughters, Ava and Eliza, the sixth generation already in training!  
Their Peterson Vineyard is now planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petite Sirah. Come taste her new vintages, including some wines that are only available at the winery.  Kelly is one of the sweetest and most genuine vineyard owners in Napa Valley.  
And, drumroll please.....Matt Fern is moonlighting as our guest Chef!  Many of you know Matt as a hospitality guru in Raleigh, having been beverage director for AC Restaurant Group, partner in Poole's Diner, or head of the food and beverages at Longleaf Hotel and Lounge.  Matt's the proud owner of his dream come true, (ish) Delicatessen.  His warm demeanor and crazy culinary creativity make him one of a kind.  We have yet to curate this menu, but it will definitely be awesome!
This will be a serve yourself cocktail style of dinner, so come casual, hungry, and happy!
