Vineyard Restaurant Events

 

Once a month Knapp Vineyard Restaurant hosts an evening wine dinner complete with sparkling reception and a five course dinner.  Gene Pierce famously sabers the tops of Glenora Wine Cellars sparkling wine in the Knapp Barrel Room and serves it to our guests in frosted champagne glasses.  Our Executive Chef, John McNabb prepares a gourmet meal sourcing most of his ingredients from local farms which includes our very own estate grown vegetables in season. The menu for each month can take us from one end of the world to another or simply be fun and scrumptious.  The portions are generous and each course is served with a white and a red wine.  The wines served include Knapp premium wines, Glenora Wine Cellar Wines and vinifera wines from our friends at Zugibe Vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake.  It is a Finger Lakes experience not to miss.

Garlic:The main Event Wine Dinner

Garlic is the main event in this delightful and savory dinner. Our chef will marinate it, broil it, sauté it, infuse it, and mix it, promising an aromatic experience. Garlic aficionados will be impressed by the carefully selected varieties of garlic. For those of you that might shy away from such a delightful meal, you may consider that ole folks have always thought garlic to be the “wonder drug” and has been reported to cure everything from the common cold to the “plague”. Plus it does keep vampires away.  $69.80 per person includes tax and tip.

Farm to Table Part One
6:30 PM to 10:00 PM     Sat, Sep 20, 2014
Venue: Knapp Vineyard Restaurant
There is no better time to dine in the Finger Lakes. Someone said, we are the tree the Big Apple grows on. A plethora of fresh vegetables, meats and dairy are used during this incredibly fresh and bountiful time. Farm-to-table refers to a movement where food is produced locally and delivered to you, in some cases, the very same day. Our chef works with producers from across the street and around the region. Together with the freshness of the season and his very creative culinary skills plus the wine from this terroir, this is a wine dinner not to miss. Ever so popular, we have scheduled two dates. Sept 20 and Oct 18. This five course dinner will be paired beautifully with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars. Please purchase your tickets on line to reserve your spot.
