Hidden Gems from France Wine Dinner
Wednesday, December 6th, 6pm
Katixa Mercier of Boutique Wine Collection will tour us through hidden surprise gems from France. We will enjoy a white Vacqueras (yes, white!), fine Champagne, Alsatian Pinot Blanc, Spargalato from the isle of Corsica, and a stunning Chateau Neuf du Pape, on a ride that takes us off the beaten track of traditional French wines.
On tasting these wines John was quickly inspired to dig into his French food memories and experiences to bring to the table dynamic pairings for these truly delicious wines.
$170 per person, includes tax and suggested gratuity
Holiday Wine Dinner Celebration
Tuesday December 19th @ 6pm
Piper Underbrink makes wine and lives in Oregon, but she spent some formative young adult years here in the Park City area, and she brings her quest for freedom and adventure to her winemaking. Keenly focused on Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, she will also stun you with her Cab Franc and Syrah wines.
Spending time with her and with her wines will leave you uplifted in such a glorious way we thought it would be perfect for celebrating the season.
For this dinner, John will go above and beyond, preparing for you a holiday feast full of fun and extravagance, pairing his NW roots with Piper’s NW wines to bring you a Pacific Rim holiday feast.
Expect a meal that reminds you of the best food memories of the holidays with special touches to take you to new holiday food heights.
$195 per person, includes tax and suggested gratuity
A Taste From
Wine Dinners Past
Napa Wines and French Champagne with Eric Rothchild
Saturday, September 30th, 2023
We were honored to have Eric Rothchild join us for our wine dinner on September 30 – yes, a Saturday night! Eric splits time among France, his home in Florida where he “moonlights” as an ophthalmic surgeon, Utah where he has a second home, and Napa where he owns Tayson Pierce Wines.
While not the winemaker per se, he is the visionary who guides Tayson Pierce Wines in Napa and Eric Philippe Champagne in Ecuil, France, as well as serving as consultant on the wines/champagnes thanks to his degree in Winemaking and Viticulture from UC Davis.
We enjoyed a start and a finish to the night with his fine champagnes, and toured his California wines through the middle of the evening.
Paula Kornell and Her Bubbles
Sunday, August 27th @ 5pm-7pm
Our great friend Maggie Heile and I came up with a fun version of our normal wine dinner format, where we enjoyed a cocktail party for 2 hours, starting with a Bubbles Cocktail, followed by straight bubbles (both a Brut and a Blanc de Noirs), paired with appetizer style fare, perfect for a late August Sunday evening event. Winemaker Paula Kornell joined us for the fun.
Summer in France
Wednesday August 2nd, 2023
With the help of veteran wine purveyor Roland Hermann and our local expert Jimmy Kofoed, we toured French wines from fine champagne to Bordeaux Reds to Sauternes. This list of extraordinary wines gave John a chance to bring out some of his adoration for French summer foods. Roland is an astute and inspiring speaker who stirred our souls with his words and his wines.
