Announcing Our Third Annual Evening with
Purdue’s Own St. Julian Winemaker
plus Gourmet Food Pairings at Fernwood:
Friday, Nov. 14, for $20 and Some Surprises, too!
Back by Mega-Popular Demand: Our Wine-Tasting & Food Evening!
Join us Nov. 14 for another inexpensive, classy evening of Wine-Food Pairings featuring Four Wines from St. Julian, Michigan’s Oldest and Longest-Operating Winery, and Delicious Food prepared by Fernwood’s Chef Tim. The wines will be brought to us from Paw Paw by St. Julian’s Chief Winemaker and Purdue Alum, Nancy Corum-Oxley.
Does Nancie know her stuff? Nancie has won the Purdue University “Outstanding Food Science Award.” The award recognizes “individuals who have brought significant honor to Purdue University and the Department of Food Science and have contributed to the field of food science.” And her new and classic St. Julian wines continue to win prestige award after prestige award!
This year, you will enjoy samples of St. Julian’s
2013 BR Passito
2012 BR Merlot
2013 St. Julian Reserve Riesling
2013 BR Albarino
paired with four gourmet mini-plates.
As the wines are poured and the food is served, Nancie will tell us more about the life of a winemaker, the latest news from St. Julian, how new and classic wines are developed and cultivated, how they’re matched with food, and about Purdue.
The evening’s Wine/Food servings will be spaced to allow time for visiting; a brief, informative talk by a visiting Purdue Agriculture College speaker; and our traditional oyster crackers for “palate cleansing.”
All for only $20 per person! This includes Admission to the beautiful Fernwood grounds; four delicious Wines to sample; four mini-servings of Gourmet Food to match the wines; a special St. Julian Wineglass Souvenir; Raffle Prizes; and an exclusive exhibit of limited-edition artworks by our own gifted Dr. George McNelly, retired Purdue Dean of Technology and now Sister Lakes’ resident artiste.
