|Eighth 2018 AAWC-Ann Arbor Tasters Guild Event / AWS
COAST TO COAST Wine Importer Dinner
with Peter Weygandt, Weygandt-Metzler
THURSDAY, August 30 at 7:00 pm
This summer, the hits just keep on comin!! I?m beginning to imagine I?m watching US Open tennis at Forest Hills. Back and forth we go, as the best in the game volley from court to court. Only here, it?s from coast to coast. First, in June, respected East Coast wine importer Louis/Dressner. Then in July Napa Valley winegrower and just retired national sales manager of respected West Coast wine importer Kermit Lynch. Bruce Neyers. Then back to the East Coast for the man himself, Peter Weygandt, founder and principal of one of the most esteemed of European-wine importers, Weygandt-Metzler, headquartered in my old stomping grounds, Chester County PA.
An attorney by trade, in 1987 Peter followed his heart (and palate!) into a wine-importer role. When I first met him, top-notch Australian estate wines were his specialty. In short time, great wines of France began to dominate his portfolio. Since, he has added wines from some of the best estates of Austria, Germany, Italy, and Spain..
Years back, Peter oversaw an Ann Arbor Tasters Guild Chateauneuf du Pape tasting followed by a dinner accompanied by other wines from his range. That took place at Ann Arbor Country Club in Loch Alpine when the kitchen had one of the top chef and sous chef teams in the county.
It was rewarding but complicated doing both the same evening, so I?m proposing to concentrate on a wine dinner alone accompanied by a wide variety of Weygandt-Metzler selections. Fillmore manager Matt Schimmel has met Peter, and he?s very excited to host this dinner. I?m sure the kitchen will exceed its already high standards.
Here?s a tentative list of Peter?s wines that I?ve selected to entice you to reserve even before the menu is published.
HERE'S THE WINE LIST
Poached Apple, Goat Cheese Fritter
Fried Oyster, Cauliflower Risotto, Toasted Almond
Asian Spiced Pork Tenderloin, Root Vegetable Hash,
Lamb Loli Pops, Boulanger Potatoes,
Layered White Chiffon Cake, Vanilla Diplomat Cream
