Ciudad winemaker dinner! Twisted Oak Winery? [moved from L.A. board]

I love Ciudad (Too Hot Tamales restaurant, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger) and when I went to their City Restaurant party on Friday night, I saw a flyer stating that they're doing a winemaker dinner on March 19th. The winery is Twisted Oak from California, and I'm pretty sure that going to attend. Seems like a good deal ($75 for all food and wine with four courses). But I'd like to know a little more about the winery...does anybody have more info?

    I cannot recall ever having any of their wines, but you could check out their website . . .

        I've tried a couple of their wines and am a member of their "twisted few" wine club. In my opinion they make wine well worth drinking. Also, if the dinner is anything like their website you are bound to have a great time at the dinner - they know how to enjoy themselves! Don't forget to bring your rubber chicken, too.

        Another fan of Twisted Oak here. Good on both the reds and whites. Nice Rhone varietals and a good verdelho from Lodi fruit.
