Wine Dinner From the Land Down Under in Sept. 2012!

Land Down Under Wine Tasting Dinner

Shrimp on the Barbie

Our September 2012 wine dinner should prove as great a time for our guests at our past wine dinners were sold out events in both July and August. You may not want to miss this one.

We are traveling to Australia and New Zealand for a tasting of some world class wines and interesting finds. Did you know there are now some really great Pinot Noir wines from boutique wineries in New Zealand that are sure to become the rage? We will be tasting a few, along with some bright Sauvignon Blanc, luscious Shiraz, Pinot Gris, and Cabernets from the lands of OZ and NZ. Jason Bise from the Country Vintner will be on hand to give his usual brilliant talks about the wines and the wine makers. You will be delighted with his presentation.

The wine dinner starts at 1:00 on Sunday, September 9th. Usually we wrap up around 5:00 with 7 fabulous courses. Also, we are featuring food products from the regions such as New Zealand Mussels, Fried Alligator, Lemon Myrtle, Bush tomato, Aspen Honey Soy Sauce, all exotic ingredients of the Pacific rim. This wine dinner should prove exciting both for the food and the wine. Lots of our guests have made wine friends and are returning for every dinner. So book early and reserve your spot in our Shenandoah Valley Inn.

Here is a peak at the menu:
