It was a beautiful summer evening in Lonesome Valley on Saturday, June 22nd when we hosted a special wine dinner featuring Davis Family Vineyard wines in our acclaimed vegetable and flower garden. Twenty four lucky guests enjoyed a picnic style meal under the willow tree while paired with some of the best Davis Family wines. Owner and winemaker, Guy Davis, joined in on the fun and discussed how the wines paired with Chef John Fleer’s menu for the evening. Guests raved about the snacks of Duck Liver Pate, Berber Pizza and Squash Fritters. For the main portion of the meal, Leek Braised Rabbit Legs, Pinchito Roasted Okra and Chicharones of Lamb Belly were among the highlights. Canyon Kitchen Pastry Chef, Chelsea Raby, provided the sweet treats to end the evening including Pecan Pie Cannoli that guests were still talking about days later. Overall is was a beautiful evening filled with great food and wine and the view wasn’t bad either. A big thank you to Guy Davis for joining us for this special night here in the Valley.
