Cass Wine Dinner

Over the summer Jason went to a wine festival at the Botanic Gardens and found quite a treat. The Cass Winery. He brought home 1 each of the wines they were pouring, a viognier, a grenache and a syrah.  Since then the plan has been a 3 course meal paired with the Cass Wines.  This Friday it finally happened. 

1st Course - Seared scallop served on a bed of lentils topped with crispy bacon and sage served with Viognier

2nd Course - Spinach tortellini in a creamy gorgonzola sauce with prosciutto and spinach served with Grenache

3rd Course - Beer boiled grilled bratwurst over homemade red sauerkraut with 4 types of mustard served with Syrah

The meal was delicious and the wine pairings right on.  We both agree that the lentil and scallop dish was our favorite.  Dessert were just some simple, store bought pizelles followed by Apples to Apples!
