Hearth Restaurant, New York, New York February 20th, 2012
Convivium Brands CEO Steve Seltzer recently attended a grower/producer Champagne tasting put on by Ubifrance at Hearth Restaurant in New York City. All of the Houses were part of Les Champagnes de Vignerons, an organization established to represent about 5,000 independent wine growers and producers.
Much fun was had by everyone last night at the second Olive Oil's wine dinner. Shrimp bruschetta was accompanied by the Northwest Wines Pinot Gris 2006, a favorite from the last dinner. Then came antipasto, and then a lovely butternut squash and apple soup. For the main course, a choice of Pumpkin Gnocchi, Long Island Duckling or a salad with gorgonzola, walnuts and steak. And for dessert, a puff pastry stuffed with gooey chocolate sauce.
