This week SOHO will complete it’s month-long celebration of American wines. (In case you’re curious, we will showcase the wineries of Spain in August).
For flight night on Wednesday, July 29, SOHO will spotlight wines from the Qupe Wine Cellars. Located on the Bien Nacido Vineyards in Santa Maria, California, Qupe is dedicated to producing handcrafted Rhône varietals and Chardonnay. Qupe shares a production facility in California's Central Coast region with Jim Clendenen from Au Bon Climat.
SOHO’s Chef Joe, inspired by southern California, has prepared three new tapas plates to be paired with the Qupe varietals.
The wines and tapas below will be featured at flight night on Wednesday, July 29, and highlighted on the menu through Tuesday, August 4.
2007 Qupe Marsanne
Grilled Baja redfish taco with shaved lettuces and cilantro sauce
2007 Qupe Viognier
Seared ahi tuna with a crisped rice cracker and seaweed salad
2007 Qupe Central Coast Syrah
Chicken paillard with olives and roasted peppers
Guests may choose to sample the wine flight (three three-ounce tastings, plus a cheese plate) for $17. Alternatively, guests can pair a glass of wine with a small plate for $12.
We hope you’ll join us this week for a taste of California.
