My date for the night: 

Course One

Handed Apps with the 2022 Veritas Viognier

The handed apps had been so good! This was a fried Virginia oyster with a hydro lettuce and caviar ranch (I’m pulling these descriptions proper from the menu!)

And OMG – these mushrooms had been filled with pimento cheese and I imagine had a pork on prime. Such an important combo! 

The Setting

Among the Supper Collection dinners are outdoor, however ours was within the stunning Veritas ballroom.

I cherished the disco ball centerpieces! We had been assigned tables, and we had been seated subsequent to a man who we found lives three doorways down from us! 

Opening Remarks

Because the dinner started, we had been launched to Randi Brady together with Veritas winemaker Emily Hodson and CEO George Hodson. They defined how the music influenced the meal and what to anticipate as every course started. 

You’ll see on the menu beneath there’s a signature music for every dish, however then as we loved consuming extra songs flowed onto the playlist in an identical type. I believe initially they’d envisioned the dance flooring opening on the finish of the meal, however so many individuals had been impressed by the music there have been dancers at every course! I actually had no concept what to anticipate once I RSVPed for this occasion, and it exceeded all expectations. It was not like some other dinner I’ve attended!

We had the Veritas Scintilla NV with some actually scrumptious fried Virginia seafood, slaws, and sauces. Every part was handed on platters, household type. 

Second Course

Paired with the 2023 Rosé, which I completely cherished. It was my favourite wine of the evening!

The lighting acquired dimmer, however this shiny salad was actually advanced with orzo, asparagus, pecorino, lemon, shitake mushrooms, and a grilled ramp dressing. 

Third Course

“Juicy” – Infamous B.I.G.

Paired with the 2017 Cabernet Franc

We loved pepper jack mashed potatoes, roasted tomatoes, and a porchetta. I simply needed to search for what a porchetta was as a result of I’m nonetheless undecided even after consuming it! In keeping with Wikipedia: “Porchetta is a savory, fatty, and moist boneless pork roast of Italian culinary custom. The carcass is deboned and spitted or roasted historically over wooden for no less than eight hours, fats and pores and skin nonetheless on.” It was SO distinctive – a brilliant crispy pores and skin, with layers of fats on within the center after which a extra gamey meat within the center (that will have been liver?!) 


“Get Gentle” – Nas

Omg – I cherished this Strawberry Clafoutis! We loved it with the 2021 Kenmar dessert wine. I needed to be cautious to not overdrink as a result of all the pieces tasted so completely collectively. 

After which the dance flooring blew up!
