Friday evening, the weekend will begin as The Lester’s conduct a Wine Tasting of their critically acclaimed estate-grown, single-vineyard appellation Wyncroft Wines. Their Avonlea Riesling, Madron Lake Riesling, Madron Lake Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Shou are reminiscent of some of the best European vintages in the Burgundian and Pommard traditions.
Later that evening the wines of Wyncroft will be paired with Wickwood’s Evening Hor’s d’oeuvres and a Dinner honoring the Lester’s, created by Julee. We will all gently meander through the evening with the incredible Michael Holmes and Mark Kahney crooning a tune or two.
Saturday Morning the Lester’s will lead us in vintage French Champagne Tasting matched to a very special Wickwood Brunch. A great start to a day wandering through the galleries and shops of Saugatuck and Douglas. Throughout the weekend there will be several surprise spontaneous Food Tastings conducted by Julee.
Saturday Evening we will all venture to the Journeyman Café where Chef Mathew Millar will prepare a special Winemakers Dinner with flights of wines from his own distinctive wine list featuring those of Bordeaux, Napa, South Africa, Italy and Oregon paired with five courses of his fabulous food. Chef Millar certainly “lives within his harvest” by cooking with only carefully selected locally grown organic produce and local naturally raised meats combining them with his own creativity, superbly. This will surely be a stunning dinner.
Sunday morning Wickwood’s Traditional Champagne Brunch will be served followed by gifts and goodbyes.
