Mazer series release dinner with Perfect Little Bites

  • Orchid Cellar Meadery and Winery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We've been working hard for the last few years on a very special mead series. Now that it's ready, all of us at Orchid Cellar are excited to share it with you.

The "Mazer" series is a line of mead and wine hybrids that combine the best of both. With the help of some choice estate-grown petit verdot, petit manseng, and chardonnay grapes, we've made something quite tasty. 

  • Mazer Rosa is a fresh and light rose mead with some fantastic floral and red grape note.
  • Mazer White is an elegant and slightly creamy mead with strong floral notes and fantastic acidity.
  • Mazer Red is an opulent earthy mead big notes of cassis and powerful tannins. Imagine your favorite dry red blend combined into the body of a mead

To celebrate, we'd like to invite you to join us for an intimate five-course pairing dinner with Chris Spear of Perfect Little Bites. We'll start with a cocktail hour, descend into three scrumptious main courses and finish with a one-of-a-kind dessert.

Check out the menu below.

  • Appetizer: Toasted bread with deviled country ham salad, quince paste & arugula

  • Smoked Gouda cheese spread

  • Thai soba noodle salad with peanut sauce

  • Grilled boneless chicken thigh with harissa over couscous

  • Dessert: Coconut cardamom bulgur pudding with charred pineapple (tossed with archer)

 

We hope you'll join us! Don't wait long as seats are very limited!

 

FAQs

 

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
