Chef Dave Shiplett out did himself, telling the crowd that this was one of the most creative menus he has ever done! …a good time was indeed had by all.
Dave also says it was only made possible by his use of Katy Rose ingredients. Here’s his acclaimed menu and wine list below. We expect to be doing more events like this again in the fall and we will post the next time and date here on our Website and on our Facebook Page.

Casas del Mar Cava Brut Blanc de Blancs A traditional blend of Xarello, Parellada and Macabeo, with the Xarello vines being over 75 years old, making this Cava taste very much like a true Champagne, but for a mere fraction of the price. A delightful Spanish Cava. Delicate bubble with apple/apricot flavors and a hint of toast.
Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc If you could bottle freshness – this would be it. The personality of our River Ranch Vineyard in Rutherford is prominent in our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc. It’s true to the varietal with well-integrated citrus, lemongrass, hints of passion fruit, melon, apricot and nicely woven minerality throughout. Crisp and clean, yet nicely textured.
Chateau Saint Pierre Cotes de Provence Tradition Rose This is a well-balanced wine that is both crisp and breezy and full of delicious red-berry fruits. It has a tight texture, with some minerality and a tangy aftertaste. This will make an excellent apéritif. Wine Enthusiast 90 Points
Line 39 Pinot Noir This fruit-driven Pinot Noir has delicate aromas of strawberries with rich flavors of raspberries and cherries on the palate and soft, supple tannins.
Tin Barn Cab The simplicity of the label belies the complexity of the wine. It has a concentrated blend of clove, licorice and chocolate at first sip, followed by a hint of cigar box and leather. Quite tasty and rich. The finish is smooth and silky, with a whisper of pepper and oak.
La Gioiosa Moscato This fresh-tasting wine is a light straw yellow color. It has an intensely aromatic fruity and flowery bouquet.
