Saturday, Sept. 17 | 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
at The Culinary Center of Kansas City
7920 Santa Fe Drive, Overland Park, KS
After this very special wine dinner/class, we promise you’ll look at Missouri wines in a whole new way. On September 17, we are pleased to feature one of Missouri’s best – Robller Vineyard in New Haven, Mo., which is a gorgeous vineyard nestled on 18 acres of rolling vines in the heart of Missouri wine country. Winemaker Jerry Mueller is passionate about the wines produced by his family’s vineyard which uses very traditional French methods of vinification in order to create world class wines from estate grown grapes. This approach generally takes significantly longer but the results are an amazing complexity and balance in each wine produced. It is a path less traveled that creates a superior outcome. Jerry’s philosophy lies in the belief that the land defines the fruit which in turn defines the wines. Winegrowing is not just this family’s livelihood but rather an expression of their passion and dedication to the land and their culture.
Jerry will lead us in a very special and entertaining evening focusing on multi-course perfect pairings of food and Robller Vineyards wines. Our own Culinary Center of Kansas City chefs will prepare dishes highlighting Missouri artisans such as Cool Cow products from Martha & Tom’s Farm in Owensville, MO, (a family owned and operated sustainable farm located in the heart of historic Missouri German wine country.) The menu will be designed around, and sourced from seasonal and local products and will include highlights such as a Poulet Mirabelle (chicken with plums, olives and tomatoes), Beouf en Daube (beef braised in red wine), and a beautiful cheese course with a Robller Port to round out the menu.
The wine dinner will highlight some of the wines for which Jerry is the proudest. It’s a power-packed dinner event brimming with culinary experience and acumen. Join us for this incredible evening of great wine and a fabulous farm-to-table gourmet dinner.
