Baileyana Dinner Held - Pelican Point
Breathtaking ambiance and panoramic views all came together with great wine at this five course event. I met Todd and Michael who shared with me some of their family history. I was very impressed as it is not every day that you meet a third generation wine maker.
Newcomer Chef Laura Rigby creations Sue Chef Arna Ginn created an amazing menu for this special night! If you have not been yet, you must enjoy a dinner at the Pelican Point restaurant…it is really good! The view is amazing and the dishes are phenomenal as well. Entertainment was provided by the California Cabaret Theater. Hilarious!
The dishes were a culinary masterpiece, artfully presented and utterly delicious. The starter a sweet and savory Humbolt Fog specialty cheese on a slice of apple with pancetta lardoons and micro greens. Paired with Tangent 2005 Pinot Gris and Tangent 2006 Pinot Blanc.
Next was the fried herbed goat cheese medallion served on a bed of spinach and arugula with baby beats. Paired with Tangent 2006 Viognier. Next was a Green risotto stuffed mushroom cut into triangles, a beautiful presentation. Paired with Baileyana 2005 Grand Firepeak Cuvee Chardonnay.
Followed by a roast of beef upon a bed of mashed potatoes infused with a generous portion of black truffles. Paired with Baileyana 2004 Grand Firepeak Cuvee Syrah.
For Dessert a chocolate truffle, a chocolate dipped strawberry served with white Chocolate mousse.
Paired with Baileyana 2003 Vintage Port. Guests truly enjoyed the VIP experience. Everyone was so down to earth and just happy to be a part of this booming wine country.
