Final Friday night time Thomas and I went to a Supper Collection Dinner at Veritas. The theme was hip hop, and we had a blast! 

Supper Collection Dinner at Veritas

I like a very good wine dinner, and Veritas places on a few of the greatest! As soon as a month for the higher a part of the 12 months, there’s a Supper Collection Dinner at Veritas. You possibly can see the total occasion schedule right here! Every dinner has a completely totally different theme, and there are lots of visitor cooks featured. Veritas invited me to the Could Supper Collection that includes Randi Brady of Diversified Vines. Randi is thought for her “Style the Playlist” occasions the place she brings wine and hip hop collectively. Randi got here up from Atlanta and put our vineyard dinner to music! 

My date for the night: 

Course One

Handed Apps with the 2022 Veritas Viognier

The handed apps had been so good! This was a fried Virginia oyster with a hydro lettuce and caviar ranch (I’m pulling these descriptions proper from the menu!)

And OMG – these mushrooms had been full of pimento cheese and I consider had a pork on prime. Such a fantastic combo! 

The Setting

Among the Supper Collection dinners are outside, however ours was within the stunning Veritas ballroom.

I beloved the disco ball centerpieces! We had been assigned tables, and we had been seated subsequent to a man who we found lives three doorways down from us! 

Opening Remarks

Because the dinner started, we had been launched to Randi Brady together with Veritas winemaker Emily Hodson and CEO George Hodson. They defined how the music influenced the meal and what to anticipate as every course started. 

You’ll see on the menu under there’s a signature track for every dish, however then as we loved consuming extra songs flowed onto the playlist in an analogous fashion. I believe initially that they had envisioned the dance ground opening on the finish of the meal, however so many individuals had been impressed by the music there have been dancers at every course! I actually had no concept what to anticipate after I RSVPed for this occasion, and it exceeded all expectations. It was not like some other dinner I’ve attended! 

First Course

“Southern Hospitality” – Ludacris

We had the Veritas Scintilla NV with some actually scrumptious fried Virginia seafood, slaws, and sauces. Every thing was handed on platters, household fashion. 

Second Course

“I’m Good” – Clipse That includes Pharrell

Paired with the 2023 Rosé, which I completely beloved. It was my favourite wine of the night time!

The lighting bought dimmer, however this vivid salad was actually advanced with orzo, asparagus, pecorino, lemon, shitake mushrooms, and a grilled ramp dressing. 

Third Course

“Juicy” – Infamous B.I.G.

Paired with the 2017 Cabernet Franc

We loved pepper jack mashed potatoes, roasted tomatoes, and a porchetta. I simply needed to lookup what a porchetta was as a result of I’m nonetheless unsure even after consuming it! In line with Wikipedia: “Porchetta is a savory, fatty, and moist boneless pork roast of Italian culinary custom. The carcass is deboned and spitted or roasted historically over wooden for at the very least eight hours, fats and pores and skin nonetheless on.” It was SO distinctive – an excellent crispy pores and skin, with layers of fats on within the center after which a extra gamey meat within the center (which will have been liver?!) 


“Get Mild” – Nas

Omg – I beloved this Strawberry Clafoutis! We loved it with the 2021 Kenmar dessert wine. I needed to be cautious to not overdrink as a result of every thing tasted so completely collectively. 

After which the dance ground blew up!

These two kicked it off and it was packed like a marriage earlier than lengthy – because of DJ Nobe!
