We had such a great time a few weeks ago at the Chateau Ste Michelle wine dinner that we joined in on the Bread & Butter and Chronic Cellars wine dinner.
This was not just a virtual dinner- you got your food, wine, and gifts too.
After picking up our meals from the restaurant and setting up the table with food, wine, and the laptop. We logged into the webinar where we were great with a representative from the restaurant and a representative from the wineries.
At each mouth-watering course, the restaurant representative would share how the meal was prepared and why it was matched with the wine. The wine representative would share stories about the wines. For example, we learned that Bread & Butter contacted Chanel Number 5 and asked to use the same font. Chanel Number 5 said yes for a price. Take a look at the photos of the Bread & Butter Chardonnay and Bread & Butter Pinot Noir in this blog and see if you can tell the front is the same as Chanel Number 5.
Do you know the song Bread and Butter by The Newbeats? It is a great song.
I like bread and butter,
I like toast and jam,
That’s what my baby feeds me,
I’m her loving man.
We started the evening’s first meal with corn ravioli, butter poached shrimp, avocado, arugula, and orange supremes. The dressing that came with the meal was so good that I used all of it.
The first course was paired with the Bread & Butter Chardonnay.Vintage: 2018
Oak Treatment: American and French Oak
Suggested Pairings: Seafood dish with a butter sauce.
Duck, duck, goose… Last time I had duck was at my high school junior prom. I could not remember what it tasted like. Therefore I tried it again. The smoked duck breast barley “risotto” with grilled vegetables and cherry-pinot reduction. I learned duck is dark meat and very chewy. I loved the colors of the mixed vegetables. The presentation was fantastic.
This course was paired with a bottle of Bread & Butter Pinot Noir.
Oak Treatment: American and French Oak
Suggested Pairings: Barbeque dishes like salmon, quail, and lamb
When I saw the dessert, I thought, “Oh ya, I can eat all of this.” Then I started to eat the delicious blackberry chocolate crème brulee tart. I slowed down after a few bites because I thought, “Wow this is rich.” Don’t worry I was able to finish it.
The dessert was paired with a bottle of Chronic Cellars Spritz & Giggles which was very good with the chocolate.
Aromas: citrus, blossom, and a hint of apple.
This was an amazing evening that included dinner, 3 full bottles of wine, and gifts! We received hats, pens, and a cool cloth bag.
