Love is in the Air…And on the Palate
for Old Edwards’ Romance Weekend Finca Decero Wine Dinner

(Highlands, N.C.) Old Edwards Inn and Spa is planning a Finca Decero Wine Dinner Saturday, January 21, 2012 as part of Highlands Romance Weekend. The Farm at Old Edwards will set the perfect backdrop for a fun and festive wine dinner. 
 
A four-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Johannes Klapdohr will be paired with Finca Decero wines. The menu will include items like Bacon Wrapped Quail “Wellington” with Elderberry Jam, Carpaccio of Venison with Acacia Honey, Minus 8 Balsamic and Dried Cherries, Curry Dusted Diver Scallops on Champagne Beet Puree with Blood Orange and Grapefruit Ragout, Fennel Tempura, Citrus Coriander and much more.
 
Finca Decero, once a bare patch of soil in the Argentine foothills of the Andes, is now a one-of-a-kind vineyard, where each vine is nurtured by hand and winemaking is without compromise. Having started ‘from scratch’, as Decero means, Finca Decero has adopted a sustainable and sensitive approach so the unique natural attributes of Remolinos Vineyard shine through in each vineyard wine.
 
The Wine Dinner is one of many events planned for Highlands Romantic Weekend.  Love will be in the air with special events around town, like:
•              FREE Bubbly Reception with Live Entertainment in the Hummingbird Lounge
•              FREE Small Group Tango Lessons at Old Edwards
•              Late-Night Dining at Local Restaurants
