Grand View’s Winter Culinary and Wine Experience weekend, sponsored by MN Monthly Magazine, is back and better than ever this February 7-9, 2014! With over 100 vintages, culinary classes and wine seminars, a soup challenge, annual artwalk and special guest, Amy Thielen, the weekend is tastefully sensational.
The weekend kicks off on Friday, February 7 with the Robert Sinskey Vineyards Wine Dinner. Cost is $95 per person and reservations are required as space is limited. Click here to view the decadent menu.
Saturday afternoon, enjoy several culinary classes and wine seminars including sushi and sake, cheese varieties, oils and vinegars, along with several chef demos. Sample several of our chef’s prized soups and vote for your favorite during the soup challenge.
Minnesota native and the host of Heartland Table on Food Network, Amy Thielen, will also be in attendance. A 2011 James Beard Award-winning food writer, she has written for Saveur, Men’s Journal and the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and recently published her book, The New Midwestern Table. She will be here to demonstrate one of her Midwestern classics and to sign books.
Later Saturday afternoon, experience over 100 of the finest wines and variety of culinary flavors delicately prepared by our talented chefs during the de’Vine Grand Tasting. The de’Vine Artwalk will follow the de’Vine Grand Tasting from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m and give attendees a first-handed opportunity to vote their favorite canvas from the top 20 submitted. The final artwork chosen will be featured on the 2014 Grand View Wine bottles – including both the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon vintage.
The evening entertainment will be provided by the talented, Divas Through the Decades which is a musical tribute to some of the most influential female vocalists in American pop music, featuring songs from the 40’s, through today’s current hits! Click here to see a sneak peak of the Divas.
