Wines from two of the most acclaimed producers of pinot noir, Ken Wright and Michael Dhillon, will be poured at a special five-course dinner at ~JARDINIÈRE~. The menu will include pinot-perfect dishes like gnocchi with foraged mushrooms, and pan-roasted squab.
From Jardinière: The Willamette Valley of Oregon and Victoria Region of Australia are at the vanguard of producing some of today's most innovative and exciting Pinots and both of these appellations enjoy this acclaim because of the success and recognition of Wright and Dhillon. Ken and Michael tend vines on opposing ends of the earth but their wines share a bond and distinction as some of the world's most alluring and well-crafted Pinot Noirs. Ken Wright notes 2005 has the potential to be his best vintage in his 20 years, no small feat. Like Ken, Michael Dhillon sees Pinot Noir as the soothsayer that will best reveal the singular characteristics of each vineyard that best define his home region.
