TWO SPOTS OPEN! Wine Dinner Wed, 2/21 - Amalie Robert Wines at La Cote d'Or!

Amalie Robert Wine Dinner with Co-Owner Dena Drews  
At Chef Jacques Imperato's La Cote d'Or Restaurant
Wednesday, February 21 @ 6:45pm
Cost $115 per person all-inclusive | Parking Free!

“When are you going to do another wine dinner?”  A question we’re delighted to answer with:  Wednesday, February 21 at La Cote d’Or Restaurant featuring the wines of Oregon’s Amalie Robert Estate with co-owner Dena Drews.

Dena will be presenting us with a mixture of classics and a couple of unique bottlings as well.  The no-oak Chardonnay Her Silhouette delivers juicy fruit and spice. The rare dry red bottling of Pinot Meunier (normally just found as part of Champagne blends) is vibrant and exciting.  And the unique Pabuck’s Gift Late Harvest Chardonnay is spicy, rich, and very, very, long.

Chef Jacques Imperato has crafted a stunning four course meal to complement the wines – and especially the fantastic “His and Hers” 2012 Pinot Noir Estate and Amalie’s Cuvees.  Many of you know from Jacques’s work at Mediterranee Restaurant, no one does a finer job of creating delicious dishes that make wines shine.  At his classic French La Cote d’Or, Jacques will serve us:

Salmon rillette, watercress, baguette toasted
Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2016

Smoked duck breast salad, crispy celery root, beet and potato,
