Washington State’s oldest winery, Chateau Ste. Michelle, will be at The Queens Arms in Corton Denham, Somerset on Friday 20 November, pairing its multi-award winning wines with the season’s finest local game. Each course of head chef, Ben Abercrombie’s Game Supper menu will be accompanied by one of Chateau Ste. Michelle’s finest vintages, including wines from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellar, its highly celebrated Napa Valley estate in California.
Diners will also be treated to a talk from the world renowned estate covering topics such as history, heritage, tasting notes and terroir, learning how the winery has successfully combined an ongoing dedication to research and innovation with a commitment to classic winemaking traditions.
The four course game menu will include a confit rabbit scotched quails' egg, a compression of foie gras and a tasting of pheasant, finished with a dessert of espresso cake, amaretto parfait, chocolate crémeux and hazelnut praline. Each dish will be complemented with wines hand-selected by Chateau Ste. Michelle, which has recently been named in Wine & Spirits’ Top 100 Wineries of the Year for the 21st time, making it the most honoured American winery in the awards’ history.
The Queens Arms’ four course Game Supper menu, including wine pairing, is priced at £40 per person and tables can be booked by calling 01963 220317.
