Estate Dinner - May Wine Release Celebration
Welcome Spring with a "Taste of Germany" - Featuring Guest Executive Chef, Edward Work
In Germany, the coming of spring is celebrated with Maypoles, dancing and May Wine - either a white wine, often Riesling or Vidal, flavored with sweet woodruff, or a punch made with white wine, champagne, sweet woodruff, and strawberries.
Join us at Johnson Estate for an evening celebrating the release of our 2020 May Wine. This is a limited vintage of sparkling white Vidal wine, flavored with sweet woodruff or "Waldmeister", as it is called in Germany.
The evening starts with hors d'oeuvres in the Tasting Room, followed by a multi-course dinner and wine pairings in the warehouse prepared by Executive Chef, Edward Work of the Heirloom Restaurant (Athenaeum Hotel at Chautauqua Institution).
Reservations required. $65/person
