On Tuesday, Dec. 9, Brighton's Silver Fork Lodge
will host a five-course wine pairing dinner featuring the wines of Dundee, Oregon's A to Z Wineworks
A to Z is probably best known for its excellent Pinot Noir, but I really also like their Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
The A to Z wine dinner is $50 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Dinner without the optional wine pairings is available for $25.
Here is the tentative menu with wine pairings:
Herbed baguette with goat cheese, roasted peppers and fresh basil + A to Z Pinot Gris
Poached pear and winter greens with blue cheese, nuts and Champagne vinaigrette + A to Z Chardonnay
Warm spiced winter soup + A to Z Pinot Noir
Duck breast with citrus-Port cherry sauce + Rex Hill Pinot Noir
Flourless chocolate torte + A to Z Rose
For reservations, call 801-533-9977.
If you'd rather not drive home after dinner, Silver Fork Lodge is offering accommodations for wine dinner attendees beginning at $90 per night, plus tax, including breakfast for two.
