Newton Vineyard hosts wine dinner at Pala

5 July 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Newton Vineyard, the venerable St. Helena winery, will host a five-course dinner and wine pairing at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, 27 September, in the underground wine cave at Pala Casino Spa and Resort. Doors will open at 7 p.m.

Reservations, $85 per person plus an 18% gratuity, may be made by calling 1-877-946-7252. Guests should ask to “book the Newton wine dinner.”

The first course will be Lobster Bisque, baked with a buttery pastry crust, paired with a Red Label Chardonnay Sonoma County. The second course will offer Roasted Filet of Chilean Sea Bass with Wasabi Potatoes, Ginger Sauce and Steamed Clams with an Unfiltered Chardonnay Napa Valley. Course three will be Wood Smoked Duck Muscovy Breast with Oregon Cherries, Port Syrup and Red Label Claret. The fourth course will feature Seared Prime Filet Mignon with Wild Mushrooms and Red Wine Reduction with Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon. Dessert will be Banana Cake with Crème Anglaise and Chocolate and a Blue Angel with Domaine Chandon & Blue Curacao.

Newton Vineyard was one of the first wineries on Spring Mountain, a rugged yet serene appellation located west of St. Helena on the eastern flank of the Mayacamas range. Newton Vineyard was established by Dr. Su Hua and Peter Newton, whose trailblazing vision transformed the hillside into a 540-acre estate with 120 acres of planted vines.

Newton’s approach to wine making is meticulous, using techniques based on an old-world style including natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. The grapes are handled with care, hand-picked in small lots and transferred to the cellar for gentle pressing. The winery is custom-designed to allow lots from 112 distinct parcels on the property to ferment separately, affording the winemaker an abundance of options when constructing final blends. Barrel aging takes place in a cave built into the mountain directly beneath the winery and its iconic gardens.
