This five-course dinner will feature wines from Sterling Vineyards, which sits just above the Napa wine country town of Calistoga.
“The Sterling Vineyards winemaking team believes that our wines should express true varietal character. … The resulting wines have exceptional quality that shines anywhere, with intriguing complexity that brings out the best in a wide variety of cuisines,” states the Sterling website.
Thanks to the culinary team at The Loft, you’ll have a delicious spread to enjoy with the various wines.
The evening starts with prosciutto-wrapped asparagus (tender asparagus wrapped in crispy prosciutto topped with goat cheese vinaigrette) and Sterling’s 2016 sauvignon blanc.
From there, tuna ceviche with mango and avocado (fresh tuna marinated in lime juice with mango, avocado and plantain chips) paired with a 2015 Sterling chardonnay.
The third course features gnocchi with duck and wild mushrooms (ricotta dumplings with a rich sauce of duck confit and mixed wild mushrooms topped with shaved parmesan) and a 2017 Sterling pinot noir.
For the main course: roast lamb chops with blackberry demi-glace (roast New Zealand lamb chops with sweet potato mash and blackberry demi-glace) paired with a 2016 Sterling cabernet sauvignon.
The evening ends with flourless chocolate torte (rich dark chocolate torte with fresh raspberries and chambord whipped cream) and a Sterling Zinfandel dessert wine.
