Choice of wine:
Chateau Revelette Blanc Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, France
50 % Rolle / 30 % Ugni Blanc / 20 % Sauvignon Blanc
Aged in concrete tanks. This wine evolves slowly, the mouth opens with aromas of candied white fruits, and amplifies with fat. A beautiful freshness on the finish. Fun & fresh with a great citrus finish.
Les Cardonnières Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, France
Blend of Syrah and Grenache. All about fruit, crisp and lightly textured, this is a ripe wine. The tangy edge partners with fresh red fruits combine to produce a balanced wine that is ready to drink.
Additional bottles of the wines may be purchased for an additional $20 per bottle.
*Note: each picnic for two will include everything you need to enjoy your meal on the spot including two plates, silverware, napkins, two wine tumblers and a wine opener.
*Funds raised benefit the Kansas City Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting women in the hospitality, food, and fine beverage industries.
