From the tasting room, we walked to a lovely spot under a tree with the table beautifully set. A progression of courses that were matched perfectly to the St. Supery wines promenaded by and were devoured. The Goat Cheese souffle with tiny delightful tomatoes for color and a pop of acid was at once rich and light. The gourmet gray salt on the tables provided a delicious crunch. Next came perfectly crisp Cornish Game hen with Israeli couscous and English peas. A cheese plate rounded out the lunch, all paired elegantly each with its perfect wine. And just when we thought we were happily full, they brought out house made truffles; chocolate, dark as sin, simple, coconut or hazelnut. St. Supery honey was the secret ingredient to the sensuous delights. Now truly full, I still looked to the future and stocked up on the wines I tasted. Later I found that in addition to the generous gift of more wine, they had also provided more recipes. Expect a DIY St. Supery dinner for a special occasion TBD. Speaking of DIY, I highly recommend St. Supery wines for your home wine pairing experiments. The whites are crisp and food friendly. The reds are supple, complex and delicious. They stand up easily on their own as great sipping wines and also pair well with food. The Elu and Virtu sport labels with beautiful vignettes of the namesake saint, Supery. A great discovery for this Little Foodie! So on your next visit to Napa, make plans to visit and see for yourself:
All in all a fabulous experience. Many thanks to the team at St. Supery for hosting, but also for the many hours of skilled dedication it takes to put out such a quality offering.
Time for a tummy rub? Great idea, GG!
