Fort Worth Restaurants - Fine Dining
Shhh! Don’t tell anyone but we have a full-service bar that will be opening soon at Chef Point Café. What we thought we would do today is highlight several wines that will be on our wine list, and give you a couple suggestions of what foods go with those wines. So strap on your taste buds and get ready to be schooled in wines.
The Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling comes from the vineyards in Washington State’s Columbia Valley. This wine delivers an unusual and very pleasing combination of sweet lime and peach with a slight touch of minerals in it, and it is perfect with our delicious Grilled Salmon, Grilled Sea Scallops or Lobster Bisque.
The Caposaldo Pinot Grigio is produced in the vineyards of Northeast Italy and has a light straw color with a very pleasing bouquet of white fruit and apple. Toss in a hint of acacia blossoms and almonds and you have a great taste treat that goes well with the Salmon Piccatta or Shrimp Pasta.
The Kendall Jackson Chardonnay is a great buttery chardonnay that has a hint of melons, honeysuckle and lemon oil and would pair well with our Mussels, and the Nobilo Sauvignon Blance has high acidity that lends to a great grapefruit flavor and would be a great addition to the creaminess of our Crab Cakes.
And why are we bothering you with this information? Education of course; part of the fun and enticement of drinking fine wines is knowing what foods to pair them with. The perfect blend of wine and food is one of life’s true pleasures and hopefully by giving you a brief description and recommendation you will be able to enjoy your meals that much more. And listen, anything that makes the incredible meals prepared by Chef Franson that much better is a good thing, right?
In a soon-to-be written article we will highlight other wines that you will be tasting at Chef Point Café, namely the Blackstone Merlot, the Parducci Pinot Noir, the Diseno Malbec and the Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon, all reds of great body and distinction.
The best family restaurant in Fort Worth is getting better. Drop by and see the changes for yourself but bring your appetites.
