Just because your weekend is over doesn't mean you have to starve. Here's what we have to look forward to this week.

California Wine Dinner

If, like us, you haven't had a chance to get away this summer to sunny California to sip on a buttery Napa Valley Chardonnay or robust Cabernet, don't despair. Chef Raymond Suto of Scottsdale's the Greene House will be bringing the experience (or at least, the taste of it) to us. On Wednesday, July 24, the restaurant will host a three-course wine dinner featuring Y Rousseau Wines from the Russian River Valley. The dinner will start with a reception and tasting of their award-winning 2011 Old Vines Colombard, a varietal originally from southwest France known for its fruity flavors and delicate texture. The dinner will include dishes such as Hamachi sashimi, Korean braised short ribs, and a ginger cake with poached Asian pear. The dinner costs $50 a person and reservations are required. Call 480-889-9494.

Kazimierz World Wine Bar in Scottsdale is being taken over on Wednesday, July 24 by mixology mastermind Richie Moe of Citizen Public House in honor of his late father Richard "Big Dick" Moe II.

Rodney Strong Summer Wine Dinner

Long before the Napa Valley became a tourist destination for wine lovers, there was Rodney Strong, a Broadway dancer turned winemaker who helped transform the area into one of the world's best wine making regions. On Thursday, July 25 Bistro 24 will host a four-course Summer Wine Dinner complemented by the wines of Rodney Strong Vineyards. The meal executed by chef Stephen Toevs will include a savory starter, summer salad and pan-seared organic chicken. Each course will be paired with a Rodney Strong wine, including the 2012 Charlotte's Home Estate Sauvignon Blanc -- named after Strong's wife -- and the 2011 Chalk Hill Estate Chardonnay. The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Bistro 24 at the Ritz-Carlton and costs $65 per guest. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 602-952-2424.
