We are pleased to announce that Ravenous and Garlini have agreed to cater our summertime patio dinners. Our challenge to them is to bring fresh seasonal fare to the patio.  To demonstrate their kitchens command of the Northwest. Salmon, chicken, pork and beef, asparagus, corn, fresh fruit and berries as well.

Here is the June 9 Ravenous Spring Fling menu  Preceeded with a glass of red or white Martin Scott wine. 

"Amuse-Bouche".  Spring  radish and ricotta crostini with fresh dill

Plated appetizer. Grilled local Quincy asparagus with cured Prosciutto and Pecorino 

Plated salad. Spring pea and potato with Smoked Wild Salmon and Dijon Tarragon Vinaigrette.  

Bread. Ravenous Roasted Garlic Focaccia

Entre'e. Pork tenderloin with Fig Glaze Nestled on a bed of Slow Braised white beans and Vegetables.  

Here is the June 16 Garlini menu     

Melon wrapped with Proscuitto served with 2 oz pour of Martin Scott Rose. Wander the patio and grounds. Prepare for more to come. Be seated.  

First course.  Caprese salad served with 2 oz pour of Martin Scott Peddler White.  

Second.  Bruschetta with herbed Ricotta, sausage and Mushroom. Two ounce taste of Cole's Collage.  

Next. Braised short ribs over Garlic mashed potatoes with roasted vegetables. Martin Scott Malbec.  

The final touch. Joel's homemade Layered Chocolate Mouse with fresh Raspberries. We suggest a bottle of Martin Scott Red Mountain Cabernet to bring the evening to a close. 

On the viticulture page, plants/crop have never looked better with copious vines, huge canopy, abundant crop, and plenty of heat to bring it on. Drought ? Wine grapes consume 25% as much water as corn and potatoes.  One third as much as apples.  We will not run dry in the vineyard this year. Huge snow pack to back it up. 

On the wine side, several new vintages are available now, Montepulciano, Counoise, Tempranillo, and Peddlers White. New Viognier, Rose’ will be coming soon. Look forward to seeing you!

Please bring an extra sweater/jacket. We are outdoors and temperatures drop when the sun goes down. Comfortable shoes are advised as well.
