Sonoma County is the place to celebrate the beautiful things in life. Located the furthest north of all San Francisco Bay Area counties, visitors and locals alike enjoy award-wining wine, local cuisine, and the natural beauty of the valley and the coast. One of the many events offering visitors the opportunity to experience the bounty and beauty of Sonoma County is the Winemaker Dinner Series presented by Inn at the Tides in their appropriately named Bay View Restaurant.
On Friday, October 21, 2011 the Winemaker Dinner Series invites guests to a delicious adventure that combines the talents of the Bay View Restaurant and Francis Ford Coppola Winery. Jack Marx, Francis Ford Coppola’s Northern California District Manager, will guide guests as they dine and sip on Sonoma County’s finest.
The evening begins with Seared Day Boat Scallops in a Chardonnay reduction that is perfectly paired with 2009 Director’s Cut Chardonnay, Russian River Valley. The next course is an organic Duck Breast from Salmon Creek Ranch located in Bodega. To sip alongside this course will be 2008 Director’s Cut Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast. The following course – an Herb Roasted Rack of Lamb served with Sonoma Goat Cheese, Mashed Potatoes, and grilled Treviso – will be accompanied by another limited production Director’s Cut wine, 2007 Director’s Cut Cinema, Sonoma County. The Cinema wine is a stellar blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah. The evening ends with a Gravenstein Apple Strudel and Vanilla Gelato paired with 2009 Su Yuen Riesling, Monterey County.
This evening will provide a feast for your senses consisting of an unforgettable view, scrumptious cuisine, and delightful wines. Make sure to contact Pure Luxury Transportation for your private chauffeured car for the evening and treat yourself to the ultimate Sonoma County experience.
