Can’t wait til Thursday night–we have a great GET LIT planned! Hope you can join us. Dinner is a bit different because we are celebrating Opening Day and entertaining a first time visitor to the U.S.! We are serving hot dogs with all the trimmings and Spicy Mac & Cheese and another ballpark staple(?). Not into hot dogs? The mac and cheese can also be served with our green salad and bread. We start serving at 5 and the readings begin at 7
Saturday is the Wine Dinner featuring favorite Midwestern foods paired with exquisite wines from Heritage.
First Course-Shrimp Cocktail with Avocado Salad
Mason Cellars Rose-2015 Rosé California On the southern end of the Sierras, the gentle and warm slopes of Linden Hill develop ripe and abundant fruit flavors ideal for the Grenache and Syrah grapes used to blend this Rosé. Luscious and refreshing, a bounty of summer strawberry and crisp cranberry flavors give this Rosé a lively structure, keeping the palate energized.
Main Course-Fresh Lake Michigan Walleye Pike Fillet served with Asparagus and Baked Potatoes
Beckmen Cuvee Le Bec Rouge 2013 The aromatics jump out of the glass, with enticing cherry pie, currant, pomegranate, lavendar and licorice layers. On the palate, the currant flavors are repeated, alongside elements of plum, cranberry, sandalwood and white pepper spice. On the finish, this wine displays an excellent balance between the acid tannins, which should lend this wine nice staying power.
Charcuterie with Rhine Hall Plum Brandy Old Fashioneds Also known as Plum Eau de Vie, Schnapps, or Slivovitz Rhine Hall Plum Brandy is a Special Edition offered by Rhine Hall. Rhine Hall Plum Brandy will be produced every fall using all fresh Michigan plums.Plum Brandy is produced by using fermented plum mash. There are roughly 20 pounds of plums in a single 750ml bottle. Just like other Rhine Hall products, the Plum Brandy is 100% distilled from plum with out any sugar or flavoring added. Arguably the most aromatic from the Rhine Hall portfolio and beautifully smooth, Rhine Hall Plum Brandy is preferably drank after a meal as a digestif or in a cocktail.
Dessert: Cherries Jubilee
A to Z Riesling has fresh aromas of citrus, tangerine peel, ripe melon, sea shells and white flowers. Time in glass reveals aromas of pear, white raisin, lemongrass, guava and kiwi. The aromas carry through to the attack with citrus, wet stone and raspberry. The acidity on the mid-palate is balanced by a hint of sweetness. The finish is long and clean. Complete, complex and beautiful.
The price for all foods and beverages is $70. per person. All the wines will be available for purchase at a 30% discount. Please call for reservations by Friday at noon as I need to order the seafood/fish from the fish monger.
