Robert Mondavi

Wine Pairing Dinner

California comes east! We love the Finger Lakes wines of our own backyard but are switching it up for this special early summer pairing dinner. Transport your taste buds to Napa as we feature the wines of Robert Mondavi. Best known for their Cabernet Sauvignon and signature Fume Blanc, Mondavi may not be local, but their shared ideals of sustainability and community make them uniquely Ithacan in spirit. Join us in the Coltivare wine cellar for an intimate three course summer-inspired meal specially crafted by Sous Chef John Corbin and a paired selection of your favorite Robert Mondavi wines. $45 ticket price includes gratuity. (Space is limited–reserve soon!) TICKETS FOR SALE ON EVENTBRITE

Chef Marion makes it easy.

An ideal class for couples, friends, and the outgoing solo cook looking to meet new people. No experience or expertise necessary.

Campfire Cooking
August 10, 6-8:30pm

Campfire cooking isn’t just hot dogs and marshmallows, it’s much much s’more. Learn to create rich and complex flavors using local ingredients, simple steps, and recipes you can replicate at home (or even better, outdoors!) in this continuation on last year’s inaugural cooking class theme. While the class will take place inside our modern kitchen, the recipes and instructions given will prepare attendees to cook outside above an open fire using a Dutch oven. Share in Chef Patrick’s passion for campfire cooking!

Kick off at 6:00 with a quick round of introductions then get hands-on in the Coltivare culinary lab in a fun and interactive class complete with tastings, takeaways and an adult beverage pairing. An ideal class for nature-loving foodies, couples, friends, and the outgoing solo cook looking to meet new people. No experience or expertise necessary.

$50 price per person is all inclusive (food/adult beverage/recipe cards). Expect to leave full, happy, and likely with leftovers! Tickets available for purchase online through Eventbrite.
