Oak Cliff Wine Dinner at Mansion

by Steven Doyle

Have you tried Oak Cliff Cellars wine which has been aggressively marketing their wines through a series of dinners across the city of Dallas? The dinners are always well thought out locations at the best DFW restaurants. If you have not sampled any of the juice you can buy a bottle  at Bolsa Mercado.

Otherwise you can check out one of the dinners like the Mansion is hosting  next week.  This will sell out quickly, and they certainly do not need our help promoting this. But we thought this to be of particular interest to craveDFW readers.    

The dinner starts at 7:30pm at the Mansion on Turtle Creek, March 27, 2012. The dinner is $125 per person which is a bargain way to taste some of the new offerings of chef Bruno Davaillon who was just named a James Beard award finalist for a James Beard Foundation award in the Best Chef Southwest category. Davaillon has also been busily writing a cookbook that will hit the shelves next week. Timely!  Call 214.443.4747 for resos.

Here is the offering for the evening:

First Course

Chilled lobster, pickled mango, avocado,

lobster roe vinaigrette

Oak Cliff Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Second Course

Crispy duck leg confit, green lentil casserole, parmesan espuma, ruccola

Oak Cliff Pinot Noir 2009
