This Tuesday, the Second Floor Bistro and Bar are going to be hosting one of my favorite wineries, Clos Pegase. Winemaker Richard Sowalsky and executive chef J Chastain will be working together for this 5 wine, 4 course meal. For my money, I always love it when there is more wine than food and for just $75, this is well worth the money. Just look at the menu:
Vineyard” Sauvignon Blanc, Carneros
Seared Scallops with
English Peas and Goat Cheese
Vineyard” Chardonnay, Carneros
Gnocchi with Smoked Duck
Vineyard” Pinot Noir, Carneros
Beef Tenderloin with
Pomme Puree and Truffled Demi-glace
Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Apricot Crème Brulee
2006 Late Harvest
I am particularly excited for the Mitsuko’s Vineyard wines. Carneros is situated in the southern-most tip of Napa Valley (and Sonoma Valley) and home to many different varietals not typically found in Napa Valley. Having had Clos Pegase before, I am extremely excited to see their style of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
As per the food, it looks absolutely amazing and a list of my favorites. I cannot wait to get to taste and drink and enjoy this wonderful event. Come say hi as we feast on Tuesday night at the 2nd Floor.
