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.

Grapes of Wrath Wine Dinner

A wineries harvest is all about the right time to pick the grapes that will turn into beautiful wine.  Chef McNabb wants to use the grape to create an equally beautiful wine dinner.  Think roasted and stewed dishes with a bit of the grape as an accent in each dish.  Grapes can come in forms of raisins, whole roasted grapes, juice, wine, and jam to use in or along side dishes like chevre, pancetta, wild rice, roasted sausage, or duck.  This five course meal is paired with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Chateau LaFayette Reneau Wine Cellars, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars.
