Vietti Wine Dinner

Posted on

On June 2nd at 7 pm, Mike Hendry from Hendry Wines will host a fixed-priced wine dinner at Panino Restaurant in Manassas. The Hendry family has been farming the same vineyard in Napa since 1939. The Hendry Ranch is composed of 114 acres of vineyard situated in the hills north west of Napa. This latitude in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, and allows us to grow 10 different varietals, each carefully distributed among our 47 vineyard blocks. All Hendry wines are made from estate grapes, and 2011 will be the 20th vintage of the Hendry label. Through the subtle use of oak, and restraint in ripeness, our wines are crafted to highlight the terroir of the vineyard.

The dinner will feature the following courses and wine pairings:

Clams Gratinate
Hendry Albarino 2012

Duck breast wrapped in swiss chard and ratatouille with local vegetables
Hendry Pinot Noir 2009

Roasted Rabbit with Italian Chestnuts
Hendry Chardonnay ‘Barrel Fermented’ 2010

Braised Pork Belly with Cider Reduction
Hendry Zinfandels

Roasted Loin of Lamb with Seasonal Vegetables
Hendry Red Wine

Dolce

The cost of the dinner is $100 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity. To make your reservation, call Panino at 703-335-2566.
