Together, Tulsa restaurateurs, Oklahoma wine brokers and wine shops will hold a food and wine event benefiting the fire-ravaged regions of Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma wine country hosted at Polo Grill in Utica Square on Sunday afternoon October 29, from 1-3 p.m.

“We serve and enjoy wines, cheeses, olive oils, and an assortment of other culinary items that are produced by these affected regions on a daily basis,” states Robert Merrifield, proprietor/chef of Polo Grill. “The agricultural producers of the Heartland in Oklahoma understand the work ethic that goes into making these products and we want to support rebuilding the lives and livelihoods of our fellow purveyors.”

Restaurants include Bodean Seafood, Biga, Cox Event Center, Justin Thompson Restaurants, McGill's, Mahogany Prime Steakhouse, Summit Club, and Polo Grill with support coming from OSU Culinary Program and Students.
