Cafe L’Europe welcomed 120 attendees at Joseph Phelps Wine Dinner

On January 18, 2017, Cafe L’Europe hosted Joseph Phelps Vineyards for a 120-person wine-pairing dinner.

Food, wine, and friends = the ultimate good-time trifecta

 

 

 

 

 

The meal, prepared by Cafe L’Europe’s Chef Rolando Casillas, was a five-course phenom, with inventive plates like 5-spice lobster over decadent spinach souffle, maple-cured duck breast, and bleu cheese-stuffed wine-soaked pear.

 

Wine and conversation flowed freely on Wednesday night at Cafe L’Europe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Napa Valley blend was a celebration of the 40th anniversary vintage of the vineyard’s flagship wine.

 

 

 

 

 

The wine, though, took center stage.

A wide variety of wines were served throughout the evening, but the star of the show was the 2013 Insignia blend.

With Cafe L’Europe’s owner and general manager, Ron Milton, hosting the dinner, all 120 guests had their fill of food, fun, and libations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guests cleansed their palates between courses with Chef Rolando’s homemade raspberry sorbet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep your eyes peeled for the announcement of next month’s wine dinner – a very special Valentine’s celebration.
