Johnson Estate Winery

September/October Pairings

"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 Shots
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

Grilled Ham & Cheese Toasts
(Piggery Ham & Capicola, Dimpflimeier Rye Bread,
and gouda) with Tomato Spread & Arugula
Paired with Pinot Noir

German Apple Marzipan Cake with Estate Apples
