Catered by local Chef Jerome Viel, the Growers Dinner honors Cima Collina’s eleven-year vineyard partnership with Joe Alarid of Tondre Grapefield Vineyard in the highly acclaimed Santa Lucia Highlands.
With a consistent focus on small, limited production wines hand picked from local vineyards, Hoff Danzer felt the timing was right to focus a handful of dinners on the unique growing sites and people behind the vines. “I think its important for our grower partners to be recognized and the grapes highlighted.”
For the occasion, Hoff Danzer has opened the renovated Hilltop Ranch barn to host the dinner. Local Carmel Valley favorite, Chef Jerome Viel will present a four-course seated food and wine pairing focusing on Cima Collina Tondre Grapefield wines, including the sought after Pommard clone Pinot Noir.
An earlier reception among the vines will highlight Tondre Grapefield vineyard further with Cima Collina library wines produced from the Santa Lucia Highlands site and dating back to the 2005 vintage.
Cost is $145 per person and $130 for wine club members. To reserve your spot call 831-620-0645.
