Wine Country Rehearsal Dinner

Wine Country Rehearsal Dinner

Gundlach Bundschu is a Sonoma County winery steeped in history. It is the oldest family owned winery in California. The Rhinefarm estate vineyard site sits at the crossroads of the Sonoma Valley, Carneros & Napa Valley appellations. We were lucky enough to be a part of multiple events at the Overlook this year, the winery’s outdoor event space.  The view here is spectacular, with vineyards as far as the eye can see. 

We specialize in writing custom menus featuring meticulously sourced local ingredients. So, one of our favorite events this year featured a menu inspired by traditional Lebanese dishes. The goal was to have an array of colorful dishes & bold flavors filling the tables. A mezze course to start included chopped sheep’s milk feta & assorted olives, harissa & mint potato salad, grape leaf wrapped sole & skewered beef with red onions & oregano. Next, came the entree -grilled chicken “Shawarma” style, shredded purple cabbage, quinoa tabbouleh & pickled cucumbers.  Side dishes of hummus & smoked eggplant salad were served with baskets of warm house-baked pita. And for dessert, a mini rose water & berry panna cotta along with a selection of our client’s favorite Lebanese Baklava bites.
