A Night in Sardinia: Regional Dinner

Registration closed

$185.00 per person plus tax
Limited to 18 guests

Join us for a tasting tour of the varietals of Sardinia, the Mediterranean's paradisiacal island off Italy’s west coast. Known for their progressive and dynamic wine industry, this has been a prized region since the times of the ancient Greeks.

We will be exploring wines produced from the extraordinary Cannonau—one of the principal grapes in the island, and also a relative of the more commonly known Granacha that flourishes in the island's warm & dry conditions, hilly terrain, and volcanic soil.

In recent times, Sardinia has been recognized as having one of the highest concentrations of centenarians in the world, attributed to their Mediterranean diet in general, and also to the elevated antioxidant properties found in the unique and delicious indigenous grapes of the island.

A multi-course dinner prepared by our private dining room Chef Matt Buehler paired with Sardinian wines by Dusan Vranic (Head Sommelier at Standard Grill Restaurant, Manhattan, NYC) . The evening begins with a reception accompanied by amuse bouche and prosecco. Included in the ticket price is all food, beverage, tax, and gratuity, as well as piccolo pasticceria to ensure you departs on a sweet note.

Summer is the season for fresh produce from your garden, local farmer's markets, or nearby farms. It can be so tempting to buy in bulk, since you have waited all year for the perfect strawberry or tomato.  When you grow your own, you end up with a surplus of fruits and vegetables. Luckily, there are several helpful ways to preserve your food so you can savor the goodness of these fruits and veggies long after the harvest is over.  Join Mama Buehler and son, our Chef de Cuisine Chef Matt Buehler in a class that will show you techniques such as canning, pickling, and jamming to preserve your summer harvest.
