Araxi at Cornucopia: Big Guns Winemaker’s Dinner
BIG GUNS WINEMAKER’S DINNER
Friday, November 7th, 2008
Time: 7:00 PM, Price $250
Home, home on the Grange . . .
Celebrate one of the world’s most storied wines, the iconic 1998 Grange, which will centerpiece the annual Big Guns Winemaker’s Dinner at Araxi, Whistler’s cornerstone of culinary excellence.
Following a reception of passed canapés and Nicholas Feuillatte Brut Rosé, Executive Chef James Walt will present a five course menu exemplifying fine seasonal ingredients-from the terroir of the Pemberton Valley and the meroir of the Pacific Ocean-each married to critically acclaimed labels and pedigree vintages from one of the world’s most diverse wineries.
In addition to the extraordinary Grange, explore the exemplary Yattarna Chardonnay, and the Penfolds ‘Baby Grange’ – a mini-vertical tasting of the fresh 2005 and mature 1990 Bin 389 Shiraz.
Penfolds’ Matt Lane, Director of Wine Education is traveling from Napa to introduce the wines for each course, providing provocative commentary about Penfolds’ portfolio and vineyard holdings, as well as Penfolds’ pioneering winemaking processes.
