Grilled octopus – Served with chickpeas, espelette peppers, fresh citrus and mizuna.
Recommended pairing – Main Street Winery Riesling
The nose of the main street Riesling is a seductive blend of honeysuckles and white peaches. Green apple, kiwi and banana flavors mingle on the palate while the hint of residual sugar is perfectly balanced with sufficient acidity to display a long tropical fruit finish. It is clean, aromatic, and pairs with a wide variety of foods.
Fried oyster – Potato crusted, served with fresh radish, Anjou pear, and bacon – chive cream fraiche, finished with baby Mache.
Recommended pairing – Main Street Winery Chardonnay.
This smooth, elegant Chardonnay is selected from the very best grapes from premier vineyards in Santa Barbara County. The resulting wine is balanced and beautiful, with tempting aromas of ripe pear, tropical fruit flavors and a hint of toasted almonds. The silken finish is accented with spice notes.
Duck confit – House made potato gnocchi and locally grown spring vegetables.
Recommended pairing -Main Street Winery Pinot Noir.
Pinot noir excels in the cooler region of southern Napa valley, where breezes from the San Pablo bay influence the vineyards producing this fruit. Sleek and supple on the palate, this wine is brimming with ripe black cherry and mocha flavors complemented by aromas of cedar, spice, and vanilla.
Braised lamb – In a Romesco sauce over a salad of parsely, fresh orange, Medjool dates served with crostini.
Recommended pairing – Main Street Winery Cabernet Sauvignon.
To create this classic California Cabernet Sauvignon, they chose fruit influenced by the warmer weather of Lake and Santa Barbara counties that give the wine its fruit forward characteristics, while the cooler climate of Monterey lends balance and acidity. It is a powerful wine that is deep, dense, and ripe with opulent flavors of black cherry, plum, and a hint of earthiness.
$40 per person, all inclusive, space is limited; tickets are sold ahead of the event.
