It’s the best way to discover new wines.
Foodies are snapping up tables for a decadent five-course dinner paired with organic wines from the Penedés region in Catalonia, Spain at the River Lee Hotel in March.
The next in the hotel’s series of exclusive Wine Dinners – an evening with Cédric Morvan of Parés Baltà, is scheduled for Thursday, March 9th at 7pm.
Taking place in the glamorous surroundings of The Grill Room at The River Lee, Cédric will share the history of this family-run winery, with origins stretching back to 1790. Parés Baltà hails from the heart of Penedés, Catalonia in northeastern Spain, where Cédric is part of the close-knit team who strive to create great organic wines using both traditional and modern techniques.
A sneak peek at the menu…
An exceptional five-course tasting menu, expertly created by Head Chef at The River Lee, Paul Lane, will kick off with an aperitif of Cork cheese Gougères.
“The tasting menu begins with Ballycotton oysters dressed in lemon and garlic paired with Parés Baltà Cava.” they told us.
“Next is pan-fried wild halibut with a lemon beurre blanc matched with ‘Blanc De Pacs’ 2021, followed by slow-cooked pork cheek and fermented barley with a full-bodied ‘Mas Petit’ 2019.
“Cédrics fourth wine choice, ‘Camino Romano Ribera Del Duero’ 2020 is served with pan-fried Skeaghanore duck, duck fat fondant potato, and purple sprouting broccoli. The fifth and final course is a delectable selection of Manchego cheeses with truffle honey, hazelnuts, and date crackers paired with a ‘Gratevinum’ 2019.”
