Women Wine Dinner

We are all excited about our wine and menu for our upcoming “OTG Women Wine Dinner” www.off-the-grid.ws .   Graciously hosted at e2 (www.e2pgh.com ) by chef/owner Kate Romane – the combination of tasty menu and delicious wines caused this event to sell out quickly.   Menu and wine accompaniment are as follows: 

1st Course:  anti pasta with local charcuterie by Crested Duck Charcuterie, seasonal selection of cheeses and veggies served with grilled focaccia

WINE: Taittinger Domaine Carneros Brut Cuvée, California USA – a well respected American sparkler that provides consistent pleasure year in and year out.   Both Chief Executive and Production Manager are women at Domaine Carneros.

2nd Course:  zucchini & prosciutto risotto with shrimp

WINE:  Jean Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rose Provence 2012, Southern France – Both Jean Luc’s wife and daughter work with him to produce expressive wines from France’s Southern Regions.

3rd Course:  farmer greens with light vinaigrette, goat cheese and toasted walnuts

4th Course:  ricotta ravioli with oxtail ragu made with heirloom tomatoes and farm herbs

WINE:  Eden Hall Shiraz Eden Valley 2005, South Australia – this partly woman-owned winery has two female winemakers who have built a successful reputation for producing big Australian Shiraz.

WINE:  Chateau d’Or et de Gueules, Cuvée Trassegum, Costieres de Nimes 2009 – produced by the highly capable Diane de Puymorin, this blend of Syrah and Mourvedre should provide an instructive new world/old world comparison with the Aussie Shiraz.

5th Course:  It’s a secret (probably something with some seasonal fruit… and probably a Sauternes)
