City Winery Spring Wine Release Food and wine Pairing

Inside+Out Raises a Toast to City Winery’s Spring Wine Releases

By Kimberly Milanese | April 18, 2023

It’s always a treat to experience a food and wine event at City Winery, and this recent celebration of City Winery’s First Seasonal Wine Release, featuring six never before released wines, was no exception. If you love food and wine (and who doesn’t) City Winery HV is not to be missed. There are several enticing wine paired dinners this season and you can also shop their wines online. Be sure to check out their membership for additional perks! Here are a few of the events we attended: City Winery Spring Food & Wine Dinner and A Wild Game Feast at City Winery, and if you love pork belly you have to try this recipe Chef Tony Moustakas Korean Pork Belly.


City Winery’s First Seasonal Wine Release

The event included six stations, one for each wine, presented with a paired bite from City’Winery’s Chef Tony Moustakas and a tour the winery. Indeed a wonderful way to spend the day and learn about the winemaking process, from vine to glass. We were escorted into their large event space with warm tones of original hardwood flooring, brick walls and oversized windows that overlook the waterfall and stream outside, while inside, a quartet played on stage. The perfect setting to delight all senses while sipping their spring wine collection and complementing savory tapas. Here’s a sneak peak:
