The Iconic Ritz-Carlton Bacara Resort Hosts Angel Oak Wine Pairing Dinner
The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara–the premier oceanfront resort along the Gaviota Coast–welcomes Babcock Winery & Vineyards to its intimate Angel Oak Wine Cellar for a four-course pairing menu in collaboration with Angel Oak chef Josh Kellim.
The special night is the second of a new monthly wine pairing dinner series to take place at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara.
The evening’s savory menu begins with a caviar course featuring an onion creme-fraiche-topped duck fat tater tot, followed by a second course of black truffle quail eggs, then a grilled guinea hen with white asparagus and morel mushrooms.
The evening concludes with a slow cooked lamb loin and rack, paired with a smoked date puree, lemon yogurt, fresh hummus and spiced lamb jus. Each flavor presented is carefully chosen to bring forth the tasting notes of each Babcock wine poured. Babcock Winery & Vineyards is best-known for its Estate Grown versions of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Chenin Blanc.. The pairing menu is matched with the moody environment of the private wine cellar room below Angel Oak–The Ritz-Carlton Bacara’s fine dining restaurant.
The Angel Oak x Babcock Winery & Vineyards Dinner starts at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19th. Seats are $225 per person excluding tax and gratuity charge. Reservations can be made online here.
