The Merryvale Wine Dinner – a Few Photos

Flowers by Taos Floral Designs

Our Sixth Annual Wine Dinner with Merryvale Vineyards was thoroughly enjoyable.  The pairings seemed spot on (if I do say so myself!), the wines were marvelous, and the vibe was perfect:  lively, friendly, family-like.

Here are a few shots of the food as we plated it in the kitchen (photos courtesy Kim Pippinger):

Coriander-Seared Yellowtail Tuna | Citrus Suprême | Fennel
Seared La Belle Farm FoieGras | Fresh Mission Fig Brûlée | Pancetta Crème Anglaise | Gastrique of 1996 Château La Tour Blanche Premier Cru Sauternes
Porcini- and Rosemary-Crusted Tenderloin of Beef Medallions with Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon/Merryvale “Antigua” Sauce | Duchess Potatoes with Smoked Onion Soubise | Winter Vegetable Napoléon
Grilled Bosc Pear | Caramel | Queso de Valdeón Blue Cheese | Piñon Crunch | Elderflower Coulis

A special thanks to René Schlatter, all our guests, and of course to our wonderful staff.  See you next year!
