Terra Andina Wine Dinner (Sort Of)

Tuesday June 7th

We’re hosting a sort of laid-back wine dinner on Tuesday the 7th (yes, that’s either today or tomorrow depending on when you’re likely looking at this).  My dear friend, the affable Kristen Hays from Terra Andina will be joining us for a free-form wine dinner.  What that means is that we’ve brought in some of the lovely and delicous wines from this great Chilian producer and are pairing them with some specials.  All of which can be ordered a la carte.  So, if you want the wine but not the dish we suggest, that’s cool, get the wine and a different dish.  If you want the dish but not the wine, same deal.  Order what you want.

It’s just that Kristen will be around to answer any questions you may have about the wines.  There’s no specific start time and we’re not all sitting together like we do for the beer dinners.  It’s just a night where we’re proud to feature these wines and are graced with an ambassador from the winery itself.

So, here are the specials along with their suggested wines…

Tostada of mango and chorizo with pickled onions and poblanos $8

-2010 Terra Andina Sauvignon Blanc $6/glass

 

Chiles en Nogada (Fried pepper, stuffed with beef picadillo, and covered with walnut cream and pomegranate sauce) $15

-2009 Terra Andina Carmeniere $6/glass

Herb-grilled lamb with pasilla negro chile sauce and frijoles refritos negros $18

-2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Riserva $8/glass
