Don't miss this opportunity to relish in the best that the wine and culinary worlds have to offer with our first delectable winemaker dinner at Blackbird. Sip on world-class wines from Ferrari-Carano Vineyards while you chat with Senior Winemaker Rebecka Deike, and enjoy an exquisite dinner from Executive Chef Travis Watson. The evening begins with a meet & greet reception on the patio, followed by a four course dinner in Blackbird. Each course is carefully curated by Chef Travis to perfectly pair with these superb wines.
Rebecka joined Ferrari-Carano in 2004 as an Enologist, but it all began at Humboldt State University where Rebecka studied Cellular and Molecular Biology with the plan to become an optometrist. After graduating in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree, Rebecka quickly changed her focus to winemaking. Following her two years as the Enologist at Ferrari-Carano, Rebecka became the Assistant Winemaker in 2006. Furthering her education in 2012, she completed the University of California Davis Winemaking Certificate Program and was Ferrari-Carano’s Associate Winemaker overseeing the Pinot Grigio and Zinfandel Wine Programs. In early 2014, Rebecka was promoted to Associate Winemaker and in 2021 to Senior Winemaker, where she now oversees Ferrari-Carano’s Red Wines Programs, including the PreVail wines, and the mountain winery production facility in Alexander Valley.
