Dual Dates: Old Vine Zinfandel Dinner at X2O, and I & Me Farm and Bedford Post Harvest Dinner



Old Vine Zinfandel Dinner at X2O with Special Guest Jeff Meyers, Winemaker, Terra d’Oro of Amador County
September 7, 6:30 pm
$100 per person, inclusive of tax and gratuity
According to the invitation, “Zinfandel is the most delicious American original in the wine world and we consider Terra d'Oro winemaker Jeff Meyers to be a combination of ‘Old Master’ and ‘Avant-Garde’—perhaps a combination of Norman Rockwell and Jackson Pollock in a wine sense: quite grounded in bold, earthy appeal with a wild, push-the-envelope creativity. Terra d’Oro and Mr. Meyers have been knee-deep in the Ancient Vine, site-specific Zinfandel of the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County since the late 1960s [this kind of dedication and decades-long involvement is downright Old World/Burgundian!]”
At this dinner, guests will be tasting three single-vineyard Zinfandels—Deaver 100-Year-Old Vines, Home Ranch, and School House Road. Chef/Proprietor Peter X. Kelly will create a special four-course Tasting Menu, “pitched perfectly toward pairing with these compelling wines of the Shenandoah Valley,” according to the restaurant. Seating is limited to 40 guests. For reservations: (914) 965-1111.

Bedford Post and I & Me Farm Harvest Dinner
September 18, 4:30 pm
$275 per person, includes food, wine, and transportation to/from Bedford Post
From the site, “Culinary aficionados should not miss this memorable fine-dining event at I & Me Farm. Chef Jeremy McMillan has prepared a mouthwatering seasonal menu paired with organic and biodynamic wines. Starting at 4:30 pm, you will be transported to I & Me Farm in Bedford Hills. Upon arrival, guests will enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a short tour of the property with owner and harvester Mimi Edelman, followed by a five-course tasting menu. The food will be harvested just steps away and prepared in front of guests with a view of the farm at twilight.”
