On the menu...

French Sparking ~ Reception

Domaine J. Laurens. Brut NV
60% Chardonnay, 30% Chenin Blanc, 5% Mauzac, 5% Pinot Noir

Produced by Limoux (Southwest France) near Carcassonne, it is the oldest sparking wine appellation of Franc. Winemaker Michel Dervin blends the four authorized grapes in the appellation to create a sparkler that could easily sell for twice the price. Michel also has an estate in Champagne, and he believes in the celebration of life and creating sparking wines that can accompany the big, small, and everyday occasions.

Crisp White ~ 1st Course

Va Piano 'Bruno's' Sauvignon Blanc 2012

2012 is a vintage to remember with the high temperatures in late spring through summer. Along with three months without rain, it created a nearly perfect growing condition for producing grapes in the Columbida and Walla Walla Valleys. The combination of conditions not only produced exceptional grape quality, but quantities were up as well over 2011's smaller crops. There will be great things to come from this vintage. 

Light Red ~ 2nd Course

Stoneburn Pinot Noir 2011

Stoneburn vineyard was planted in the central Wairau Valley in Marlborough, 1989. The soil is old riverbed, very stoney with underlying loamy soil producing relatively light crops by very flavorsome fruit for fresh, lively, and well-balanced wines. Stoneburn was named to reflect the North Otago and Scottish heritage, in the stoney site.

Bold Red ~ 3rd Course

Confucius Says... Red Blend by Fall Line Winery
41% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot

"They who know the truth wine are not equal to those who love it, and they who love it are not equal to those who delight in it." - Confucius 

Made by Tim Sorenson of Fall Line Winery, commissioned by the Wild Ginger and designed by Mike Klay of Powerslide Design Co., this classic Bordeaux blend is exceptionally elegant, balanced, and approachable.
