Salty Sow, Central Austin’s neighborhood gastropub featuring contemporary farmhouse cuisine, will host an exclusive dinner-and-wine pairing event on Wednesday, Oct. 26, spotlighting wines from Texas Hill Country favorite Fall Creek Vineyards alongside Salty Sow’s handcrafted, autumn-inspired dishes.
The Fall Creek Wine Dinner ($75 per person) provides Salty Sow guests the opportunity to savor an assortment of Fall Creek varietals perfectly paired with four courses of Executive Chef Marmulstein’s special off-menu dishes.
Prior to the meal, guests will be welcomed into Salty Sow with Fall Creek Vineyards’ award-winning Vintner’s Selection Grenache Rosé, a delicate, slightly zesty and fruity wine ideal for pre-dinner sipping.
The first course of Salty Sow’s Fall Creek Wine Dinner features Fresh Gulf Shrimp served with a chilled tomato fondue and vanilla lime cream, paired with Fall Creek’s Chenin Blanc, an off-dry white wine with aromas of chamomile and honeysuckle and ripe of peach and dried apricot flavors. For the second course, Chef Marmulstein will present Rabbit Confit with a bistro salad and Pure Luck Farm & Dairy’s whipped goat’s milk feta cheese, paired with Fall Creek’s GSM, an aromatic red blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre with pepper and jam notes and a spicy finish, the perfect complement to the rabbit dish. The third course highlights locally sourced I O Ranch Lamb Shoulder served with buckwheat tabbouleh and seasonal fruits, paired with the full-bodied Fall Creek Tempranillo, a classic red wine with a Hill Country twist featuring flavors of juicy plum, dried strawberry, anise and baking spices.
The dessert course includes a French-style Orange Croquembouche paired with Fall Creek’s Moscato, a refreshing dessert wine with hints of flowers and tropical fruit flavors.
