"I recently had the privilege to meet with Serge at his restaurant, Bodega Tapas, Wine, & Rum, in Wake Forest. Together, we tasted our wines to select the ones we would highlight at our August Sip & Savor wine dinner. What a treat to witness Serge sip each wine with careful deliberation as he searched his mind through the countless possibilities to find the perfect puzzle piece to fit the wine before him. I watched with fascination and awe, as he would suddenly take his pencil to paper to pronounce, this is the one!"
Blanc de Blanc 2021. A sparkling wine produced by Methode de Champenoise using select Chardonnay grapes from our Clone 95, a Burgundian Chardonnay that is used to produce sparkling wine in the Champagne region of France. Bright, crisp, and wonderfully dry.
House-made Empanada filled with a North Carolina-raised Wilders Waygu beef in a Cuban-style picadillo and drizzled with cilantro crème.
Rosa Dia 2022. A Provençal-styled dry rose using Grenache from our Block B plantings. The light pink color embraces a glass of delightful fruit ranging from hints of strawberry to honeydew melon.
Salade with Grandma’s vinaigrette recipe and roasted goat cheese.
Viognier 2022. One of JvD’s most awarded and popular wines. A Rhone Valley grape that grows exceptionally well in our terroir. In the nose, honeysuckle, stone fruit, and slight hints of ripe pear.
Coquille St. Jacques gratinées in the shell, shrimp, mornay sauce, and mushrooms.
Rock & Rail 2018. Blending all five of our estate-grown Bordeaux grapes, we produce our signature blend of complex intrigue in aroma and taste. Deep berry fruit, ripe fig and hints of coffee give us a great accompaniment to richer meats and hearty fare.
Sliced Brisket, prepared by Prime Barbeque of Knightdale North Carolina, with a green peppercorn sauce and Pomme purée.
Steel & Stone 2013. From our library, we are offering this very limited wine for this Sip & Savor. Reserved from our highly-awarded and recognized first vintage of Steel & Stone you will see and taste the incredible age-worthiness of wine from this estate. Rich, textured with grace notes defining its age.
Espresso coffee, Lumpy’s of Wake Forest ice cream Profiteroles, with chocolate sauce and crumbled roasted hazelnuts.
