Discounted Friday night lodging can also be added and is encouraged for the complete Wildwood/Rodney Strong Experience.
Learn the art of blending, what a Bordeaux-style red wine is, how Rodney Strong Vineyards assembles its Symmetry, and how the final blend is an improvement over the sum of its parts. Discover the Artisan concept, including technique and style. By tasting each of the five varietals separately, we will open a window of understanding as to what the winemaking team sees and expects from each component, and then demonstrate through practice how the addition or omission of any one of the components relative to others can dramatically influence the final blend.
Charcuterie Board Waiting in your Room: Begin your culinary adventure with a sumptuous array of artisanal cheeses, cured meats, and delectable accompaniments, perfectly complemented by a bottle of Heidsieck Monopole Champagne, setting the tone for the evening.
Caney Fork Salad: A refreshing interlude featuring the vibrant flavors of the season.
Entrée Choices: Delight in the tantalizing options of the ‘Filet Mignon with asparagus and baked potato,’ or savor the ‘Chilian Sea Bass with jalapeno corn succotash & potatoes au gratin,’ each paired impeccably with the robust Red Blend that you created, enhancing the savory indulgence.
Key Lime Pie: Conclude this culinary soiree on a sweet note with chef’s exquisite Key Lime Pie.
Throughout the weekend, revel in boutique lakeside lodging, immersing yourself in the serenity of nature paired with unparalleled comfort. Wake up to a leisurely Sunday brunch, enjoying the breathtaking views before bidding adieu to a weekend filled with exquisite wines, exceptional cuisine, and delightful company.
Join us for an exclusive rendezvous with fine wines, gourmet dining, and esteemed guests amidst the scenic beauty of Wildwood Resort and Marina. Indulge in the artistry of flavors and the warmth of fellowship, creating memories that linger long after the last sip is savored and the final bite enjoyed.
