We’ve paired our favorite Spring dishes with Hudson-Chatham Winery’s most exciting wines. There will be a single seating at 7pm, and the vintners will be available to describe the wines and answer questions!  


antipasti
Formaggi e Carni Locali Four Fat Foul St. Stephen, Stella Vallis Tomme and house-made pate de campagne.
2016 Empire Reserve A New York State “super blend” of Baco, Maréchal Foch, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged two years in French oak to produce a supple and silky wine.

primo
Risotto ai Forieri di Primavera Risotto with the harbingers of spring: locally foraged ramps, asparagus, English peas, artichoke, and shiitake mushrooms.
2015 Estate Seyval Blanc  This estate-grown hybrid of Sauvignon Blanc is aged in stainless steel and finished with oak to round out the mouthfeel and accentuate tropical notes of pineapple on the finish. A luscious dry white.

secondi
Anatra alla Griglia Grilled boneless breast of magret duck served au jus with Cognac-poached Dan Baker pears and orange farro-grain salad.
2015 Estate Chelois A French-American hybrid that yields a distinctive bright cherry note against a palate of bramble fruit.

OR

Costola d’Agnello alle Erbe Grilled lamb rack rubbed with herbed Parmigiano. Moscato-pomegranate reduction and garlic mashed potatoes.
2016 Baco Noir Old Vine Made from the fruit of 67-year-old vines, this Baco is rich with notes of cranberry and dark chocolate.

dolce
Tiramisù A special take on the classic from El Toulà restaurant in Treviso features Hudson-Chatham’s 20 Cask Barrel Fino Espresso, made from soaking dry, sherry-like Fino wine with espresso beans in the winery’s own solera.
