"What We Ate”
Chardonnay Harvest & Picnic, September 23, 2018
Johnson Estate began its third Chardonnay harvest – with the assistance of thirty six guests who were "not-so rookie" pickers as a number of them had participated before - on September 23rd. And yes, originally it was intended to be a Pinot Noir harvest and picnic - but those grapes were picked on September 8th. Mother Nature is the boss in this business!
After a couple of hours of picking, lunch was served on the south side of the winery.
Here’s what we ate:
Roasted Tomato Soup
with Cheddar Cheese Sage Shortbread
Paired with Semi-Dry Riesling
Cheese & Charcuterie Board with Nuts,
Quince Paste, and Pear Cardamom Sauce
Paired with Ruby Red Rosé
