Expressions Series - Vidal Blanc
$49/person, plus tax and gratuity
Limited to 30 guests.
Fence Stile owner-winemaker Shriti Plimpton and chef Pete Dulin present a wine dinner that celebrates versatile Vidal Blanc, a French-American hybrid grape grown in the vineyards. The dinner highlights four Fence Stile wines made from Vidal Blanc. Fence Stile produced and recently released only 37 cases of Tramonto Late Harvest Dry Vidal Blanc. This small-batch craft wine exhibits the unique aroma and flavor of a skin-macerated wine unlike any other regional wine.
Dinner guests will also have an exclusive, rare, and one-time opportunity to taste juice from our November 2018 pressing of late harvest Vidal Blanc. We reserved this juice for a special occasion! Naturally-cold-fermented from wild yeast, you'll taste the transitional flavor of late harvest Vidal Blanc grape juice that was the inspiration for Tramonto.
Chef Pete Dulin has developed a seasonal menu that highlights the nuances and versatile character of Fence Stile's Vidal Blanc-based wines. Experience the Vineyard LifeStile with us.
