Having grown up here, the connection with the land that you get in Sonoma County – particularly the food and the grapes that we grow – is incredibly special to me. This package offers an insider view into two cherished parts of our community.
Healdsburg, CA (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
Hotel Healdsburg and Jordan Vineyard & Winery are proud to announce the “Farm to Fork Culinary Journey,” the ultimate getaway for foodies and wine enthusiasts, taking place in the heart of Sonoma County. Launching in June, this memorable package includes a two-night stay at the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg in the heart of downtown Healdsburg, an epicurean excursion across Jordan Winery’s impressive estate, and a special farm-focused dinner for two at Hotel Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Kitchen restaurant featuring ingredients from Jordan’s garden.
“We’re thrilled to introduce this new package offering for guests this summer,” said Circe Sher, partner and marketing director at Hotel Healdsburg. “The Farm to Fork Culinary Journey will showcase the natural bounty of Jordan’s exquisite estate, its elegant wines paired with the culinary creations of Chef Dustin Valette of Dry Creek Kitchen, and the luxurious accommodations of Hotel Healdsburg.”
Guests will experience the new Jordan Estate Tour & Tasting and journey beyond the walls of the winery chateau on a guided tour of the breathtaking vineyards, vistas, chef’s garden and more. Jordan Estate is one of the few properties in Northern California wine country with more than 1,000 acres of contiguous land that is navigable by vehicle, owned by a private individual and able to be explored by consumers for the first time through this tour. As part of the estate tour experience, guests will ride to remote destinations to experience wine and food in the countryside where they’re grown and enjoy tastings of multiple Jordan Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon vintages, Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil and an array of farm-fresh delicacies from the winery’s chef. The tour, which began its first full season in April, runs for three hours and is available Thursday through Monday, starting at 9:45 a.m.
Following their tour of Jordan, guests will return to Hotel Healdsburg and enjoy dinner for two at Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen, renowned for its progressive American cuisine featuring simple and elegant seasonal recipes. A special four-course menu prepared by Dry Creek Kitchen’s Chef de Cuisine Dustin Valette will feature ingredients from Jordan Winery’s garden and farm, some of vintner John Jordan’s favorite DCK dishes and Jordan wine pairings.
"John and I really want to educate people on what a truly unique place Sonoma County is,” said Valette. “Having grown up here, the connection with the land that you get in Sonoma County – particularly the food and the grapes that we grow – is incredibly special to me. This package offers an insider view into two cherished parts of our community and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase what we do best.”
