Girasola Vineyards California Wine Dinner
Monday April 16, 2018
Speaker-David Jeffries
6:30 pm
“Girasole Vineyards (pronounced jeer-uh-so-lay) wines are made from certified organic grapes grown on the rolling bench lands of Redwood Valley in the Mendocino appellation of Northern California. All of the grapes that go into our wines are estate grown, and hand-picked from family owned and operated vineyards that date back to the 1950’s. In addition to our organic certification, Girasole wines are also vegan friendly and are grown in GMO-free Mendocino County.”

1st Course
Coconut Shrimp Flatbread
Red Pepper Sauce-Peppery Greens

Wine-Girasole Pinot Blanc
“Our Girasole Pinot Blanc comes straight from the vineyard to you. It is a fresh, lively wine with aromas of ripe green melon, honeysuckle and white peach. We ferment it cool to preserve the lovely fruit, and bottle right after harvest with just a touch of the natural CO2 remaining to give it an additional lift. It’s a great expression of the vineyard, and tasting it is the next best thing to being out among the vines on a beautiful spring day.”

2nd Course
Pork Cheek Tamale
Charred Chile Crema-Apple Salsa

Wine- Girasole Sangiovese
“The Girasole Sangiovese is all about fresh cherries and rose petals! Soft tannins and bright acidity make the wine clean and refreshing on the palate. A slight touch of oak rounds out the finish and a splash of Pinot Noir adds complex strawberry notes. This is a wine for charcuterie, pasta and creative, homemade pizza.”

Sliced Rib eye
Chermoula-Spiced Fried Sweet Potatoes

Wine- Girasole Cabernet Sauvignon
“Ripe plums, cassis and spice lift the aroma of this Cabernet. The wine delivers flavors of chocolate, spice, black fruits and forest floor. There are firm, round tannins and French oak adds a rich, toasty character. All these notes linger and come together in a complex, melodious finish.”

Clementine Crème Brûlée
Mexican Chocolate Ganache-Caramelized Clementine
