Patrick's Preferred Chateau Souverain Wine Dinner
While traveling the beautiful landscape of Sonoma during my last visit to the wine country, I passed by an intriguing winery. As tempted as I was to pull in and taste their wine, my next scheduled appointment just down the road prevented me from doing so. "Well, maybe next time," I thought to myself. Although I have not yet had the chance to visit that winery, I recently had the opportunity to taste the wines of that wonderful estate called Chateau Souverain. The winery is nestled in the heart of Sonoma's Alexander Valley.
It began its legacy 1944 when J. Leland "Lee" Stewart harvested his initial crop of grapes in an effort to produce a first-rate wine from mostly single varietals such as Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and Cabernet Sauvignon, a relatively new concept back in those days. Since that time, Chateau Souverain has changed in many ways but one thing has remained constant. Commitment to quality pours out of every bottle of Chateau Souverain. Whether a novice or a connoisseur, one can appreciate this quality when sipping the crisp and floral Sauvignon Blanc, the spicy and slightly peppery Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, or the full-bodied and complex "king of the hill" Cabernet Sauvignon Winemaker's Reserve.
We invite you to join us for a very special wine dinner which will take place on Tuesday, April 13th. The evening will begin with a reception at 6:30. Appropriate wines from Chateau Souverain will complement a full-course dinner featuring unique dishes prepared by our Chef, Bert Gill. As usual, a representative of the winery will host the evening, providing interesting commentary and background information about the wines. Please call our Dining Room Manager, Nancy Monaghan, at (617) 969-6500 to make your reservations. The cost of $67.65 per person includes tax and gratuity. We encourage our guests to call early as this event has a limited number of spaces available and is sure to fill quickly.
