Schug Winery has long been a favorite label
in the Charleston area. And Old Village Post House has always been a beloved
place for wine tastings. So what better pairing of flavors than a special,
five-course wine dinner matching the two?
On Monday, January 18 guests will start the evening with a
courtyard reception and hors d’ oeuvres
at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Winemaker Michael Cox will join
Patrick Emerson, the restaurant’s renowned wine expert, to discuss the wine
making process at Schug and provide tasting notes.
The menu will begin with a scrumptious Benton’s Pork Belly, followed
by a Thai-inspired Barramundi dish and finally a succulent Duo of Grilled Lamb
Chop and Garlic Sausage. To finish off the meal, guests will enjoy a Vanilla
Bean Cheesecake with Oreo cookie crumb crust topped off with a cherry glaze.
Carneros-based Schug Winery combines old world understanding
and tradition with modern winemaking techniques. Schug is best known for their
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which will each be paired with a course, in addition
to their other popular varietals, like Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and
their sparkling red, Rouge de Noirs
Schug uses sustainable practices, such as creating bird habitats
for natural pest control. Winemaker Michael Cox came on board at Schug in 1995,
and brings a lifelong interest in wine and a preference for new technologies.
The cost is $58 plus tax and gratuity, and seating is limited.
Please call 843-388-8935 or visit Old Village Post House website.
Guests can retire after the dinner to one of the 6 charming rooms upstairs,
which are priced at $99 for the evening.
