Dreadnought Wines, Pittsburgh’s Strip District Mavens for all things wine, and The Terrace Room of the Omni William Penn Hotel will partner for a very special wine dinner featuring the organic wines from Yorkville Cellars as well as a visit from winery owner Edward Wallo.
On May 4, 2011, Foodies are invited to explore a selection of organically grown California wines from Dreadnought Wines paired with the fine foods presented by Executive Chef Jacky Francois, beginning at 6:30 PM.
It was in the mid-eighties when after reading a Sunset magazine article about Mendocino County that Edward and Deborah Wallo discovered this special place: a highland valley where the waters of the Russian and Navarro Rivers start and part, and where the giant coastal redwoods and valley oaks come together.
Intuitively convinced that such a place would foster complex and richly favored grapes, they bought a 110 acre ranch in the town of Yorkville (Pop. 317). There were already a few acres of neglected Sauvignon Blanc but the quality of the small amount of fruit that these vines yielded was encouraging. With the help and dedication of their vineyard manager and application of the latest organic practices, they restored those vines to fine, healthy plants. Over a few years the vineyards were expanded to 30 acres and the first estate wines were bottled in 1994.
The Terrace Room offers a setting unlike any other. From the moment you step foot inside, you are captivated by the beauty of this incredible restaurant, with its original molded plaster ceiling and the striking back wall mural titled “The Taking of Fort Pitt”. The original name of the Restaurant when the hotel opened on March 9, 1916 was “The Italian Terrace”. Historic photographs of the room adorn the walls upon entry for your enjoyment.
What is truly special about the Terrace Room however, is not limited to the ambiance or beauty of the room, but the culinary delights that are served within. Award winning Executive Chef Jacky Francois takes fresh natural local ingredients, and fuse them into many creative dishes that inspire the palate and envelopes the senses in an unmatched dining experience.
So much love for food and wine in one room, and guests are in for a true palate pleasing evening.
Join Dreadnought, Edward Wallo, and The Terrace Room for this wine dinner event on Wednesday, May 4th at 6:30 PM. The cost is $90.00 per person, and includes tax and gratuity. Space is limited, and pre-paid reservations are required by calling (412) 391-1709 clicking below
