Napa & Co. in Stamford has been a cutting edge food destination for many years and on Monday June 15th they will host a Withers Wine Class with the owner of The Withers, Andrew Tow. Tow will present six wines over three courses, each duet of wine will be paired with a special dish prepared by Napa’s Executive Chef Walter Estrada.

The Withers was launched in December, 2013 in Sonoma California blending wines from vineyards in both Sonoma and Mendocino counties plus the foothills. The aim of The Withers is to “produce elegant, nuanced, balanced, food friendly expressions of cool climate vineyard sites that don’t sacrifice flavor, complexity or intensity.” The six wines that will be featured at this class are available locally, priced from $20 to $44.

The evening will begin at 630PM with a 2014 The Withers, Rose – El Dorado – Santa Rosa and a 2013 The Withers, English Hill Pinot Noir – Sonoma. Chef Estrada will pair these delightful wines with a plate of roasted beets, oranges and grapefruit, with walnuts, and a blue cheese vinaigrette.

This will be followed by a 2013 The Withers, Peters Vineyard Pinot Noir – Sonoma Coast plus a 2013 The Withers, Charles Vineyard Pinot Noir – Anderson Valley, which will be paired with an Orange & Honey Duck Breast with a parsnip-apple purée, heirloom carrots, fiddlehead ferns with a touch of duck jus.

The three-course dinner will conclude with a 2010 The Withers, Bel Canto – El Dorado Grenache Blend and a 2009 The Withers, Mr. Burgess – El Dorado Syrah Blend, which will served with Local Beer Braised Short Ribs, with truffle corn purée, shitake mushrooms, English peas and a truffle crema.
