Choose Your Own L’Aventure: a Winemaker Dinner at the Winery

If a visit to the central coast or the California’s wine region aren’t on the books for the upcoming months, why not head to the Winery Restaurant and Wine Bar for a first-class sampling of some of the state’s best? The L’Aventure winery is teaming up with chef Yvon Goetz for a night of premiere pours and great food.

On Dec. 1, Chef Goetz will create a special menu paired with some of L’Aventure’s best wines. Based in Paso Robles, the winery has earned numerous awards for many of their wines. With programs and dinners like the one scheduled at the Winery, they’re brining their best selections out for sampling.

Working with L’Aventure’s sommelier William Lewis, Chef Goetz’s four-course meal includes passed hors d’oeuvres paired with the 2008 L’Aventure rosé. Following the appetizers, guests will enjoy California quail prepared with butternut squash ravioli and accompanied by the L’Aventure 2008 Optimus. Jumbo scallops are paired with the 2008 Estate Roussanne and the 2008 Estate Cuvée accompanies Chef Goetz’s slow briased New Zealand osso bucco. To end the meal, a selection of Goetz’s desserts will be served.

Space is limited and reservations are recommended for this event.
