Sip & Savor Featuring Chef Tobias Boutelier
Join us September 18th from 1pm-3pm!
2021 Rosa Dia: Provence styled Grenache dry Rose. Notes of fresh berries with crisp finish. A refreshing balance of fruit and acid and the perfect companion to Chef Tobias’ first plate.
Pairing: Poached North Carolina shrimp, remoulade, coastal plains watercress, heirloom tomatoes, with fresh herbs.
2019 Steel Fermented Chardonnay: We produce this Chardonnay in a style to celebrate the true excellence in this Queen of white wines. Pear, apple and slight lemon notes twist the tongue while the crisp acid finish refreshes the palate for another sip.
Pairing: A selection of North Carolina cheese, NC mountain apples, cardamon, and radish shoots.
2015 Merlot: In tasting through the wines with Chef Tobias, he took one sip of the Merlot, smiled and pronounced duck confit. Our merlot is soft, yet firm in the right places. A great accompaniment to duck, goose or other weighty fowl. Berry, plum and tease of tobacco with smooth firm finish.
Pairing: Five-spice duck confit, crispy shallots, North Carolina sweet potato, and pickled pepper.
2017 Cabernet Franc: Recently released to our wine club, the 2017 Cabernet Franc weaves subtle, delicate fruit notes to complement rich classic French cuisine. Great twist of berry fruit and hint of cedar.
Pairing: Beef bourguignon, Goat Lady chèvre (Climax, NC), potato duchesse (pommes de terre duchesse) and Rosemary roasted oyster mushrooms.
2017 Rock & Rail: One of the most desired wines produced by Jones von Drehle. A blend of the classic Bordeaux grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Powerful without being overpowering. Gentle but with a great backbone. If it is not beef it is paired with, let it be chocolate, and so it is!
Pairing: Spiced chocolate cake, walnut ganache, blood orange marmalade & candied orange.
