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.

Twist on Taco Night Wine Dinner

According to Jeffery Plicher, professor of history at the University of Minnesota who traveled all over the world eating tacos. The origins of the taco are really unknown. “My theory is that it dates from the 18th century and the silver mines in Mexico, because in those mines the word “taco” referred to the little charges they would use to excavate the ore. These were pieces of paper that they would wrap around gunpowder and insert into the holes they carved in the rock face. When you think about it, a chicken taquito with a good hot sauce is really a lot like a stick of dynamite. “We promise we won’t blow up the kitchen making this dinner a bit different, but we guarantee a pleasant twist on the crunchy and soft styles tacos that you have come to know.  Folded, wrapped and flat with fish, chicken and meat, the taco will be the main event at each course.  This five course dinner will be paired beautifully with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Chateau LaFayette Reneau Wine Cellars, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars. $76.15 per person includes tax and gratuity.
