Seven Glaciers Restaurant Wine Dinner featuring Napa Valley’s Pine Ridge Vineyards
March 13, 2013 (Girdwood, Alaska) – Alyeska Resort’s award-winning mountain-top restaurant, Seven Glaciers is hosting a wine dinner featuring Pine Ridge Vineyards on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 7:00 P.M. The evening includes a five-course Tasting Menu from the kitchen of Alyeska Resort’s Executive Chef Jason Porter.
The featured wines are from Pine Ridge Vineyards of Napa Valley, California. Established in 1978, Pine Ridge produces classically proportioned, expressive wines that embody their history and distinct place of origin.
Pine Ridge founder Gary Andrus, inspired by the illustrious wines of Bordeaux, believed in the Napa Valley’s potential to produce wines of similar stature. He planted the property’s original namesake vineyard on a steeply terraced hillside flanked by a dramatic ridgeline of pine trees in the Stags Leap District. Gary’s pioneering efforts with this first vineyard were met with tremendous success as the Bordeaux varietals he planted – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot – thrived and produced wines of great distinction.
In the following years, Pine Ridge continued to acquire exceptional vineyard sites across the region. Today, the Estate’s 200-acres span over five renowned Napa Valley appellations – Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Oakville, Carneros and Howell Mountain.
Executive Chef Jason Porter has created a Tasting Menu to complement the featured wines. Menu highlights include Kodiak Weathervane Scallops, Guinea Fowl and Dry Aged Ribeye. The chef’s pairing menu can be viewed online at AlyeskaResort.com.
The Pine Ridge Wine Dinner will start at 7:00 P.M. Seatings for the dinner are $150 per person.
