Prager Port: Beyond Chocolate and Cigars, April 23

Prager Winery & Port Works is truly Old School based on their version of the Worldwide Web,
a window in the tasting room that has not been disturbed in forever.

This is an Advance Invitation for Wine Club Members

There’s nothing that irks Peter Prager more than the notion that port wine is a delightful beverage to be consumed exclusively after dinner and paired with chocolate or cigars.  His world view is much more expansive. . .like matching port to multiple courses in a meal. . .and to be enjoyed year-round, not just when it is chilly outside.  He’s challenged Carpe Vino to help explode long-held, widely observed, pre-conceived notions about port—the basis of his family enterprise in St. Helena, Prager Winery & Port Works.

So, please save the date for our next Sunday extravaganza, A Prager Port Pairing:  Beyond Chocolate and Cigars, set for April 23 at 4 p.m.  Our objective is to bring new perspective to the possibilities of enjoying port in new-to-you pairings.  We’ll be serving four Prager ports, each with an appetizer that you won’t expect.  As a finale, we’ll be pouring barrel samples of a 10-year-old Prager port that will be released in late spring. . .available for pre-sale exclusively at Carpe Vino.

Chef Alexander has just received sample bottles of the ports to be featured, and he is collaborating with Peter to settle on the specific menu.  We’ll announce pricing next week as well as a date and time we will begin taking reservations (Wine Club members get first crack for 24 hours).  All of our previous Sunday events have sold out very quickly. . .none faster than our Italian tasting that was fully subscribed in two hours after the event was announced.

Just 30 seats are available, and for this event we’ll be using a “ticket” system to prepay for reservations (event cost, tax and tip inclusive).  We’ll have all the details soon, but until then. . .

Peter Prager predicts a prolific parade of premiere ports for your prodigious pleasure.  Promise.
