Set for Friday, June 2nd, this exclusive evening promises a five-course food and wine pairing experience that will leave you craving more. Join us as we explore a symphony of flavors, expertly curated to complement each other, and elevate your dining experience to new heights.

Pairing 1: Creamy Potato Soup and Dark Horse Pinot Grigio

Kickstart your culinary adventure with a velvety, soul-warming bowl of creamy potato soup adorned with crispy bacon and a hint of truffle oil. This indulgent creation finds its perfect match in a glass of Dark Horse Pinot Grigio from California. As you savor each spoonful, allow the crisp acidity and vibrant flavors of the wine to cut through the richness of the soup, creating a harmonious blend of textures and tastes.

Pairing 2: Fried Brie and Mirassou Chardonnay

Prepare your palate for the second pairing, featuring a tantalizing combination of flavors. Delight in the crispiness of fried brie, balanced with the peppery bite of arugula, the tanginess of dried cherry tomato, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Paired with Mirassou Chardonnay, this dish reaches new heights. The wine's notes of tropical fruit and buttery richness perfectly complement the creamy, melted brie, creating a symphony of flavors that dance on your tongue.

Pairing 3: Slow Cooked Pork Tenderloin and Stemmari Nero d'Avola

For the main course, indulge in the succulent tenderness of slow-cooked pork tenderloin, served alongside a medley of perfectly cooked mixed veggies and a luscious mushroom sauce. This exquisite dish finds its ideal companion in a glass of Stemmari Nero d'Avola, hailing from the sun-kissed vineyards of Sicily. 

Pairing 4: Grilled Flank Steak and Carnivor Zinfandel

Prepare your taste buds for a carnivorous delight as you savor a perfectly grilled flank steak, adorned with a rich red wine pepper sauce, and accompanied by a side of mouthwatering potato gratin. This robust dish demands an equally bold wine pairing, and Carnivor Zinfandel from California steps up to the plate with its strong fruity taste. 

Dessert: Cheesecake and Somrus Mango Cream Liqueur

The night will end on a sweet note with a delectable cheesecake topped with a tangy passionfruit coulis, a sprinkle of cookie crumble, and a drizzle of mango gel. To enhance this dessert sensation, sip on Somrus Mango Cream Liqueur from Wisconson.
