Copain Wine Dinner at Poole’s Diner

copain.gifNow I’m not going to get into the habit of promoting special events for friends, but Ashley Christensen asked me nicely to spread the word about this great looking wine dinner at Poole’s on Tuesday, February 5 at 6:30 PM. This dinner features the wines of Copain Wine Cellars, all of which have received a 90+ rating from Parker. Wells Guthrie, Copain’s owner and winemaker, will be in attendance (ladies, his baby blue eyes will make you melt). The cost is $79 a person, and includes the following menu:

Reception at the bar with sparkling wine and hors d’oeuvre


Lobster bisque with lobster terrine and chervil

2006 “Catie’s Corner” Viognier


Torchon of Berkshire pork belly with caramelized rutabaga

2006 Tous Ensemble Pinot Noir


Crispy Quail stuffed with duck confit

2005 Saison Des Vin Syrah


Braised lamb with French horn mushrooms

2006 Les Voisins Syrah


Caramelized banana “cream pie” with bittersweet chocolate


So give them a call at 832-4477 to book a spot. And report back here regarding Wells Guthrie’s eyes!

  2. I have visited this site on many an occasion now but this post is the 1st one that I have ever commented on.

    Congratulations on such a fine article and site I have found it very helpful and informative – I only wish that there were more out there like this one.

    I never leave empty handed, sometimes I may even be a little disappointed that I may not agree with a post or reply that has been made. But hey! that is life and if every one agreed on the same thing what a boring old world we would live in.

    Keep up the good work and cheers.
