It’s simple!  It tastes good.  Psychologists have studied why certain foods make us feel comfortable.  The study could have easily been conducted at our Comfort Food Wine Dinner at Knapp Vineyard Restaurant.  For many years we have served up foods that brings us back to cozy, warm thoughts, and great memories that inevitably lead to our association with certain foods. Cheesy mac and cheese, crispy fried chicken, flavorful mash potatoes, warm waffles loaded with syrup, savory pot roast, and sweet and fruity ice cream.   Any one of these foods could be on the menu at this year’s Comfort Food Wine Dinner and with Executive Chef John McNabb’s creative culinary skills, the dishes are made with a twist.  Expect comforting food that will rid the negative vibes in your evening and accentuate that life is good! This is a five-course meal paired with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Chateau LaFayette Reneau Wine Cellars, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars.
