A little bit different than most wine dinners but a lot more fun is Canton’s Fork & Wrench “Blend your own Bordeaux” interactive food and wine event. On Thursday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. Ginny Murphy, CSW with Trinchero Family Estates, Fork & Wrench’s Executive Chef Cyrus Keefer-City Paper’s 2013 Baltimore Best Chef and Shana Leachman, Fork & Wrench’s mixologist/bar manager invite you to this intimate (16 guests only) gathering. Chef’s multi-course family style meal, Trinchero’s Napa Valley wines and the pièce de résistance – the guests’ creation of a Bordeaux blend create a memorable evening. Prizes will be awarded after a blind judging by Ms Murphy-CSW, Chef Keefer and Ms. Leachman of the participants’ Bordeaux blends. This entire experience is $75 per guest plus tax and gratuity.
The Fork & Wrench’s libation mistress, Shana Leachman, expressed, “Sometimes wine can come across as intimidating or unapproachable and adding a formal coursed dinner can be uncomfortable for some.” Leachman continued, “This ‘Blend your own Bordeaux’ dinner is different; it is more interactive, fun and welcoming to all levels of wine enthusiasts.” Guests will enjoy conversing with the experts along with each other at this small gathering at the Fork & Wrench’s “Blend your Bordeaux” food and wine event.
Participants can look forward to tasting Trinchero Napa Wine:
- Calistoga Sauvignon Blanc
- Petite Verdot
- Cabernet Franc
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Guests’ crafted Bordeaux blend using a selection of the above mentioned wines
Ginny Murphy-CSW of Trinchero Family Estates will inform and guide the guests on how master blenders hone their craft and palate to create a final cuvee. Trinchero Family Estates has bragging rights to having more than fifty 90+ awards and accolades. The estate has an exceptional reputation for producing exceptional Bordeaux-style wines.
