Wine Dinner Woolley's Steakhouse

Back in September we attended a wonderful wine dinner at Woolley's Steakhouse. It was a fabulous menu with wonderful wine pairings from Robert Hall Winery. The menu had me sold,

2010 Viognier
Butler Passed Hors d'oeuvres

2010 Chardonnay
First Course
Fresh Diver Scallops
Heirloom tomatoes, candied bacon

2009 Sauvignon Blanc
Second Course
Foie Gras
Apples, Fresh and Candied Cranberry and Arugula

2008 Syrah
Third Course
Maple Glazed Quail
Pumpkin “spiced” risotto

Concorde Grape

2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Main Entrée
Certified Angus Beef Two Ways
Braised short ribs with sweet potato
Seared Tenderloin with root vegetables

2010 Orange Muscat (Margaret's Vineyard)
Buttermilk Pannacotta
White chocolate, blackberry

Each course was better than the next, they really spent a lot of time thinking through the menu and sourcing locally.  I don't even know what my favorite course was, but I loved the Foie Gras. 

Another real treat was that Robert Hall, the wine owner was there to walk us through the pairings and also tell us about the history of the winery. It was a wonderful evening, we had a table of 8 fun friends which made the night very memorable.
