Chilean Wine Dinner 2

Chilean Wine Dinner- May 31st, 2012

On the 30th birthday of our Special Events Director, Shawn Olender, we hosted our first ever Chilean Wine Dinner. Chef Nestor prepared a wonderful 4-course meal paired with wines from Chile’s top vineyards. Guests were greeted with butler passed Shrimp Ceviche and Patacones paired with Casa Lapostelle Chardonnay as they entered our main dining room. As the sun set the menu boasted Lobster Gazpacho, Tropical Chutney Empanadas and a Black Angus Center Cut Filet Mignon that was to die for.

Josh Gangway from Empire gave a great tutorial about each wine and the vineyards they came from. American Party Rentals provided stunning linens that set the stage for a truly special evening.

Fortunately, our friend’s from Riley Maclean Photography joined us and captured the evening.
