winedinner-150x150Here are this week’s wine tastings and dinners from Sigels, Parigi, Taverna, Victory Tavern (FW), Hotel St. Germain, and Sevy’s Grill.

June 11
Victory Tavern

Thursday, June 11th, 2009 – 7pm
$69 per guest
2501 N. Houston St., Dallas
Victory Tavern City Grille is hosting a celebration of Sonoma County’s Jordan wines on Thursday, June 11. A mingling reception with passed Chef’s Selection hors d’oeuvres will kick off a relaxed evening around the table enjoying four courses of culinary inspirations from Chef Jim Oetting – all paired with Jordan’s wines, known for combining the artistry of the old world with the technology of the new.
Victory Tavern City Grille has a hip, urban atmosphere and a lively menu of seasonally inspired dishes reflective of Chef Jim Oetting’s experience and sense of quality ingredients. The very reasonably priced offerings are unique to Victory Park, without compromising polished and friendly service.
Kathleen Oliver, Regional Sales Director for Jordan Winery, will be on hand to present the wines and answer questions. Among the highlights of the evening will the 2000 and 2001 vintages of Jordan’s Sonoma County Cabernet. The bouquet of the 2000 vintage offers subtle notes of cassis, black cherry currants and chocolate and is a richly textured wine with lush, ripe flavors of blackberry, bing cherry, cassis and raspberry. The 2001 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented slowly and received a gentle extended maceration in order to extract, soften and stabilize the lush, elegant tannins and concentrated flavors from the fruit before pressing. Slight earthy notes of tobacco and cedar and a subtle framework of oak complete this delicious wine.

Soter Vineyards Tasting
Tony Soter, owner/winemaker
Sigel’s-Addison — Thursday, June 18th 5-7pm
At its core, Soter Vineyards is the culmination of many years of study and preparation. In the mid-1980s, Soter began working as a consulting winemaker in the Napa Valley, assisting luminaries such as Araujo, Niebaum-Coppola, Shafer, Spottswoode, Viader and Dalle Valle. After years of mentoring and encouraging some of Napa Valley’s most respected growers and winemakers, he ended his consulting roles to focus exclusively on Soter Vineyards, Etude, and his family. He brings to Soter Vineyards the experience of over 30 harvests, the erudition and attention to detail reflected in countless wines, and most importantly, the desire to make great wines from very specific places on his own terms.
Join us at Sigel’s-Addison (15003 Inwood Road) on Thursday June 18th from 5-7pm as legendary winemaker Tony Soter leads us through a tasting of the current releases from his estate in Oregon.

Seatings from 6:30-10:00

We invite you to a very special dinner with an authentic multi-course menu taken from the pages of the cookbooks of the Jefferson White House and Monticello. Thomas Jefferson, our third President, was a Francophile whose years spent in France greatly enhanced his love of French food. With his accomplishments and his passions, he retired to Monticello, his personal residence, where he celebrated a blend of cultures and traditions. Jefferson’s experience in France opened a new gastronomical world for him and this was evident and celebrated at Monticello. Thomas Jefferson understood the principles of haute cuisine and his love of food, wine, and the arts, gives us the perfect opportunity to create an interesting evening.
Enjoy an informative soirée, divine cuisine, and authentic tablescapes and images of Monticello as a background. Chef Chad Martin has created an eight course interpretation of a few of Jefferson’s favorite dishes such as: *Monticello Garden Vegetable Pistou*Foie Gras with Fig Preserves*Oyster and Spinach Gratin with Macaroni* Crab Stuffed Red Snapper with Baked Squash* Roasted Duck Breast with Orange Compote and Baby Artichokes*Local Goat Cheese Tartlette with Heirloom Tomatoes*Baked Vanilla Ice Cream*

Parings on the Patio at Parigi with Dallas Uncorked
June 22, 2009 6:30P-9P

On June 22 Dallas Uncorked will team with Parigi Restaurant on Oak Lawn for a four course wine dinner featuring some of Dallas’ best local purveyors and producers on Parigi’s patio.

Parigi has been a Dallas favorite for over 20 years.  Chef/Owner Janice Provost includes an artful flair in all of her dishes and maintains a deep commitment to supporting our local farmers and purveyors, using locally sourced products in her restaurant.  The evening’s menu will include dishes from Dallas purveyors such as Scardellos CHEESE and CHOCOLATE SECRETS, and Texas producers such as Lemley’s Produce and Dominion Farms.  The evening’s offerings will be paired with wine selections from France, Italy, California, and Texas.

Guests from our featured purveyors will join us in the evening’s wine/food pairings discussion and to give some insight into their dedication of growing neighborhood businesses, and fresh meat and produce for Dallas.  Dallas Uncorked is a big fan of Slow Food logic, mainly because we love great flavors and often find locally grown fruits and veggies just taste better.  We hope you will join us under the stars on June 22 to support these local merchants and producers.

The dinner will begin at 6:30PM with a wine reception. Seating for this engagement is by advance reservation only and is $80 per person (inclusive.)  Reservations are available through our website, www.dallasuncorked.org.  Parigi is located at 3311 Oak Lawn Ave # 102, Dallas, TX 75219
