They make great wine, but can they cook?

The 4th Annual Iron Vintner Challenge features four Woodinville winemakers who square off in a head-to-head cooking competition.

Over the course of three weeks in June, competitors are put to the test to see who is the best cook and will ultimately be crowned the 2013 Iron Vintner.

Tonight winners from rounds one and two will compete for the championship.

Barking Frog Chef Bobby Moore will serve as the emcee each evening. He unveils the secret protein at the start of each event, then the evening’s competitors will have one hour to prepare an appetizer and an entrée for the celebrity judges.

Tickets for each event are sold separately and advance tickets required.

Ticket price includes:

  • entrance to the event

  • tasting samples from each competing winery with
  • special reduced pricing on food & wine.
