Tuesday, June 18 - Spanish Dinner with Pares Balta Winery

Sunday, June 23 - Ronsel do Sil Wine Dinner

Fate brings a second Spanish wine dinner our way. In this case, Enriqueta Yravedra, whose family lives in a small town in northwest Spain, where they live alongside a gorgeous river and grow native grapes - most of which we have never heard of before - and make astonishingly flavorful wines.  Read an intriguing paragraph about Ronsel do Sil winery here

And the even more real hook is that Enriqueta is a concert pianist and professor of piano in NYC, and she will be playing a concert while also taking us through her family’s wines, all the while John and his team will be cooking course after course of dynamic pairings.  This one has a higher price tag to compensate our entertainer along with our usual wine and food pairings.  We expect a 4+ hour evening with an early start at 5 pm.  
Honestly, I think you will want to attend both Spanish dinners!

 

$175 per person including tax and gratuity.

Wednesday, July 24 - Donelan Family Wine Dinner
 

Finally, you will have an opportunity to meet a new winery to Utah, Donelan Family Wines, out of Santa Rosa. Read more about them here! With wines that have scored perfect 100 scores along with 98’s and 99’s, they are coming into the Utah market with a bang.  I was blown away in my tastings with them, and they are notable for their broad range of white varietals and a focus on Syrah for their reds.  I have long aspired to their profile - brawn, finesse, and originality!  Have not garnered a 100 point score yet myself.

A Taste From
Wine Dinners Past

Russian River Vineyards

Wednesday February 28th @ 6pm

Mike Mekjian, General Partner and part time PC resident will guide us through the winery’s fine chardonnays, pinot noirs, and cabernet, with the accent of a Barbara wine they have recently added to their repertoire. Maggie Heile will join us as well, both a friend of Mike’s and a friend of the Mercantile who brings her trusted palate and keen eye for winemakers to the table. 

 

Russian River Vineyards is a small, farmer-driven winery that focuses on great grapes turned into great wines without over-meddling in the natural alchemy of wine making. Mike visited us remotely 3 years ago and is happy this time to come in person to share his passion and sense of fun with wine.

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.
