wine-making boot camp

Mother Nature blessed both the harvest and the Harvest Party this year at the Millbrook Winery. A record three hundred people were in attendance, many coming in trains and buses from Manhattan. After admiring the red, yellow and orange autumn leaves reflected in the pond, they went on to the more serious business of food and wine in the tent in front of the winery. Each year a well-known guest chef prepares a gourmet meal for the festivities, but this year's menu featured a pair of culinary luminaries. Certified Master Chef Ken Arnone and Master of Wine Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, the co-writers of "Pairing with the Masters," presented each dish paired with two different Millbrook wines and asked everyone to choose which pairings were most successful. It was both fun and educational to experience this firsthand.
