A Dine-Asty at Wolfgang’s
Chef Wolfgang Green

Chef Dickie Brennan

While the Highlands Food & Wine Festival, November 9-12, is filled with exciting special events and music, the exclusive wine dinners held at premier local restaurants are not to be missed. 

Of special note, is “Generations,” an evening with Caymus Vineyards and Wagner Family Wines at Wolfgang’s Restaurant and Wine Bistro, with guest chef Dickie Brennan on Saturday, November 11.

Executive Chef Wolfgang Green invites you to celebrate family heritage with two dynasties of the culinary and wine world. Guest Chef Dickie Brennan is a third-generation New Orleans restaurateur of the renowned Brennan family. Chef Brennan and Chef Wolfgang will collaborate in the creation of five remarkable courses to complement Caymus Vineyards and Wagner Family Wines.

An executive chef at the age of 28, German-born Wolfgang Green’s culinary career has taken him around the globe, including serving as Executive Chef for the Brennan Family of Commander’s Palace. As a member of the famed New Orleans Brennan restaurant family, Dickie grew up in the rich culinary world of family-owned Commander’s Palace, has traveled extensively, and has trained under some of the world’s greatest culinary talents. 

The combined histories of these two extraordinary chefs is unsurpassed.  For 23 years, Chef Wolfgang Green has delighted patrons with his take on American cuisine at Wolfgang’s Restaurant and Wine Bistro in Highlands. Southern Living named Wolfgang’s the “Best Place for Dinner in Highlands.” Our State Magazine named Wolfgang’s the “place you must eat in Macon County.” Wolfgang’s Restaurant has also been featured in Southern Accents, WNC Magazine, and Outside Magazine and has consistently been the recipient of the Best of Wine Spectator Award.

After working in the kitchens of some of Paris’s most highly acclaimed restaurants, Dickie returned to New Orleans to open Palace Café in 1991. Dickie served as Palace Café’s Executive Chef during its first year of operation and remains the only member of the Brennan family to have held this lead culinary position. 

Caymus Vineyards and Wagner Family Wines will showcase a collection of wines that have a reputation for quality and consistency, produced from the premier wine growing regions of California. These will be artfully paired with the culinary magic of Brennan and Green.
