Multi-award-winning Greenes Restaurant, Cork, in association with Tindal Wines, is hosting a special evening on Wednesday the 8th of November to celebrate Rhône Valley Wine Week.
Greenes Restaurant will be offering diners an eight-course tasting dinner of the very finest local, seasonal produce. The food will be prepared by award-winning executive head chef Bryan McCarthy, paired with some of the very finest wines from the Château Pesquié winery in the world-renowned Rhône Valley wine region in France.
Bryan McCarthy said, “It’s always a pleasure as a chef to work with the best winemakers and match great produce. I am particularly proud of the produce we have in Cork and Château Pesquié is one of the best in the Rhône Valley. I am really looking forward to the collaboration and presenting this to our guests on the evening.”
Diners can expect an eight-course menu that celebrates the best winter ingredients produced and grown in Cork, including seasonal snacks, seafood, game and cheeses. Each dish will reflect executive head chef Bryan McCarthy’s ethos for putting local, seasonal, wild food from Cork at the centre of the menus in Greenes.
Damien Archer-Good of Tindal Wines said, “Rhône Wine Week is a week-long celebration of the wines of the Rhône Valley. Now in its fifth year, the week sees Rhône producers flying over to Ireland to help Irish wine lovers discover more about this amazing region.”
This special event will be hosted by wine writer Leslie Williams and food writer Joe McNamee and is in collaboration with Château Pesquié (represented by Cindy Albero) and Tindal Wines.
Greenes’ sommelier Frank Schiltkamp said, “Here at Greenes Restaurant, wine is a very important part of our overall dining experience so we are delighted to make our own contribution to Rhône Wine Week Ireland.”
The cost of the Rhône Valley Wine Week Dinner at Greenes Restaurant is 65 euro per person. It is taking place on Wednesday the 8th of November with a start time of 7pm.
