My date for the night: 

Course One

Handed Apps with the 2022 Veritas Viognier

The handed apps have been so good! This was a fried Virginia oyster with a hydro lettuce and caviar ranch (I’m pulling these descriptions proper from the menu!)

And OMG – these mushrooms have been full of pimento cheese and I imagine had a pork on high. Such an amazing combo! 

The Setting

A few of the Supper Sequence dinners are outdoor, however ours was within the lovely Veritas ballroom.

I beloved the disco ball centerpieces! We have been assigned tables, and we have been seated subsequent to a man who we found lives three doorways down from us! 

Opening Remarks

Because the dinner started, we have been launched to Randi Brady together with Veritas winemaker Emily Hodson and CEO George Hodson. They defined how the music influenced the meal and what to anticipate as every course started. 

You’ll see on the menu under there’s a signature track for every dish, however then as we loved consuming extra songs flowed onto the playlist in an analogous fashion. I believe initially that they had envisioned the dance flooring opening on the finish of the meal, however so many individuals have been impressed by the music there have been dancers at every course! I actually had no thought what to anticipate once I RSVPed for this occasion, and it exceeded all expectations. It was not like another dinner I’ve attended! 

First Course

“Southern Hospitality” – Ludacris

We had the Veritas Scintilla NV with some actually scrumptious fried Virginia seafood, slaws, and sauces. Every part was handed on platters, household fashion. 

Second Course

“I’m Good” – Clipse That includes Pharrell

Paired with the 2023 Rosé, which I completely beloved. It was my favourite wine of the night time!

The lighting obtained dimmer, however this shiny salad was actually advanced with orzo, asparagus, pecorino, lemon, shitake mushrooms, and a grilled ramp dressing. 

Third Course

“Juicy” – Infamous B.I.G.

Paired with the 2017 Cabernet Franc

We loved pepper jack mashed potatoes, roasted tomatoes, and a porchetta. I simply needed to search for what a porchetta was as a result of I’m nonetheless undecided even after consuming it! In keeping with Wikipedia: “Porchetta is a savory, fatty, and moist boneless pork roast of Italian culinary custom. The carcass is deboned and spitted or roasted historically over wooden for at the least eight hours, fats and pores and skin nonetheless on.” It was SO distinctive – an excellent crispy pores and skin, with layers of fats on within the center after which a extra gamey meat within the center (that will have been liver?!) 

Dessert

“Get Mild” – Nas

Omg – I beloved this Strawberry Clafoutis! We loved it with the 2021 Kenmar dessert wine. I needed to be cautious to not overdrink as a result of all the things tasted so completely collectively. 

After which the dance flooring blew up!

These two kicked it off and it was packed like a marriage earlier than lengthy – because of DJ Nobe!
