Basic Wine Education: How to Taste Like a Pro
Sunday, July 10th
2:00 - 3:30pm
Have you ever been to a wine tasting or out to dinner where wine was described as having aromas of lemongrass, wet stone or gooseberries? Did you feel completely lost? If you know how to drink wine but don't really know how to taste it, then grab your friends for a fun afternoon of learning. Soon, you will describe wine like the professionals!
Walk Around Wine Tasting: Wines of Spain & Portugal
Saturday, July 16th
12:00 - 3:00pm
The border between Spain and Portugal is one of the oldest, unchanged borders in Europe. Furthermore, the two countries and cultures share many similarities and have a long history of winemaking dating back to the Romans. With over 450 grape varieties grown, there is a grape or a style for everyone.
Come and kick off the start of our Walk-Around Wine Tasting season by tasting through the diversity of wines from these two countries. Enjoy a farm-fresh Iberian lunch buffet prepared by the chefs at Ninety Acres.
Cocktail Making Class: Farm to Glass
Sunday, July 17th
1:30 - 3:30pm
Here at Ninety Acres, we prefer to break down the barrier between the food on your plate and where it was derived from. The same concept goes for your drinks! In this new cocktail class, our Mixologists will use fresh and seasonal ingredients to create delicious options for filling your glass. Enjoy some light snacks while learning, and tasting, how to make summer infusions, syrups and more. Cheers!
5th Annual Crab Boil
Wednesday, July 27th
RAIN DATE: August 3rd
6:30 - 9:30pm
Despite the name, the cooking technique is actually steaming. With beer, vinegar and liberal seasoning, crabs are placed in pots to steam. Afterwards, the bright red crabs are pulled up and turned out onto platters.
Tables are covered with layers of brown paper or newspaper and wooden mallets are provided for cracking claws to easily remove the crabmeat.
Join us for a fun outdoor dining experience featuring this fresh and sweet shell fish served with traditional family style accompaniments. Cheers to a night under the stars with your choice of this season's best rosé wines or a Six Point Crisp!
Advanced Wine Education: Breaking Down Bordeaux
Sunday, July 31st
1:00 - 3:30
The wines of Bordeaux are some of the most sought-after wines collected in the world. The red wines are the style model for every single varietal Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as many proprietary red blends—produced throughout the world. Wine Director Brooke Sabel will break it all down as you taste through six wines and get you anxious to start your own collection.
