An Eat and Drink Local Dinner in Virginia

Last night a special winemaker dinner event for the drink local wine.com conference was enjoyed in Leesburg, VA at the Tuscarora Mill restaurant. A special menu was planned for the event and accented local wines and local foods. The two really go hand in hand. If one is going to support the eat local food movement then it follows one should support the drink local wine movement.

Last night’s dinner was a five-course meal prepared with local foods and local wines. As we entered the restaurant, we were offered a Sauvignon Blanc from Veritas. A short time later we enjoyed an avocado, mango and shrimp dish served with two local Petit Manseng wines. The second course was Truffled Ayrshire Farm Organic Chicken Galantine. This wine was served with two local Viogniers. The third dish was Baker Farms Pork “Blanquette” and the two wines offered with this were a Nebbiolo and a Cabernet Franc. The fourth course was Roasted Martin’s Angus Beef. Meritage wines were served. Finally, the dessert-strawberry shortcake! Yum, it was so good. However as Terry mentioned to me, that when I make strawberry shortcake at home, don’t make it this small. Yes, it was good and despite it being the fifth course of the meal, I could have found room for a little more.  Dessert was paired with Pearmund Cellars Late Harvest Viognier.
