Aloha e Buon Giorno,
Chef Rodney Uyehara and the team at Viaggio Honolulu are hosting their first-of-the-summer wine pairing dinner –Quando L’Italia incontra La California! This exclusive dinner is limited to just 60 guests so you need to secure your place now!
Executive Chef Rodney Uyehara has created a unique, mouthwatering, six-course menu to be paired with select wines from Byington Vineyard & Winery. As an exclusive treat, Viaggio invites you to meet Winemaker, Andrew Brenkwitz and Sommelier, Vince Robledo to take you on a journey of the senses.
This exclusive one-night-only six course menu will feature the following outstanding food and wine pairings:
The antipasto is a house-made Lobster Ravioli tossed in caper butter and paired with a Byington favorite – the 2014 Monterey County, Liage – a crisp bright blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.
Taking us to the halfway point of this sumptuous meal is Salmon Mediterranean, tapenade crusted with sautéed tomato, anchovies, capers and baby arugula – paired divinely with the double Gold Winning 2014 Santa Cruz Pinot Noir.
The menu then moves on to a melt-in-your-mouth Filet de Manzo Alla Pizzaiola, with sautéed mushrooms, peppers, cipollini onions, tomatoes and shallots, paired with an Alexander Valley 2014 soft and subtle Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve.
The fifth dish (but who’s counting?) in this culinary journey is a succulent Italian Rib Eye Steak marinated and grilled to perfection with a Madeira port wine sauce and paired with a refined, Bordeaux heritage 2014 Alexander Valley, Sofia.
|And now to the dinner’s Gran Finale you have been saving space for… Chocolate Torta, a decadent almond chocolate cake with creamy white fudge, covered in a silky smooth chocolate ganache, accompanied by fresh berries, and paired with an aptly named Santa Cruz Euphoria, 2014!|
See you at Viaggio e Buon Apetito!
When: Thursday May 23, 6pm to 8:30pm
