It’s not hard to appreciate a winemaker who got into the business because of a fondness for alcohol as a teen growing up in Healdsburg, Calif.
That’s how Fred Scherrer of the acclaimed Scherrer Winery decided on his career.
It didn’t hurt that he was the son of an Alexander Valley grape grower.
Scherrer — and his wines — will be part of a special dinner at d.k Steak House in Waikiki on June 6.
The menu will feature a farm-to-table meal featuring menu items such as bacon-wrapped fresh island opakapaka roulade (shown above), vintage natural New York strip loin with fresh housemade egg pasta, and pepper-crusted fresh Hawaiian ahi nicoise (shown below) — all paired with Scherrer’s wines.
The menu was prepared by executive chef Jason Miyasaki and executive sous chef Albert Balbas. It will be offered in addition to the restaurant’s regular dinner menu.
Cost is $45 per person. Add $28 per person for three 3-ounce wine pairings.
