Pairings Await at the Capital Wine Festival
The 4th Annual Capital Wine Festival (2100 Massachusetts Ave. NW) is coming up, featuring a series of wine pairing dinners spanning three months.
You'll have nine opportunities to salivate over four-course menu created by Chris Ferrier, the executive chef at 2100 Prime. Participating vineyards include Pine Ridge Vineyards, Heitz Wine Cellars, and Burgess Cellars
, which will pair their signature wines with menu items like black currant-glazed pheasant, lamb osso bucco and potato croquettes. Each dinner ($125-$140) includes meal, wine, tax and gratuity.
You'll also have the chance to hobnob and sample from 10 local wineries at the grand opening reception, Jan. 25 from 7-10 p.m. at the Fairfax Hotel. Enjoy a fresh buffet as well as wine pairing seminars for $65 per person.
for all events are available online.
