A Taste of Germany - May Wine Estate Dinner

Dear //FirstName//,
We are happy to be sending you this information about a new series of dinners at Johnson Estate to feature locally-grown produce and the talents of local chefs.  We begin this series with a German-inspired menu - created by Guest Chef Edward Work -
for our upcoming May Wine Dinner on April 13th. 

You may have heard us say before that our "Germanic" micro-climate permits us to excell at growing Germanic grapes, such as Riesling.  Germany's spring "white-wine-punch" traditions inspired Johnson Estate's Winemaker, Jeff Murphy, to create our sparkling May Wine, flavored with the woodland herb, sweet woodruff ("Waldmeister" or "master of the wood").  And we continue to strive to educate ourselves about Germany's wine traditions - the photo below was taken on our visit to the Black Forest near the Moselle River in 2014. 
We are working on the dinner's wine pairings now - to include the new release of our May Wine as well as other special vintages. 
We hope that you can join us! 
Please make your reservations online by April 10th. 
$65/person includes all wines and gratuities.
