NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Following visits to London, Sydney, New Delhi, Oslo and Melbourne, leading Australian winery, JACOB'S CREEK™, made a New York City stop this week as part of the global Our Table tour. The initiative brings food lovers together over memorable meals, which celebrates the people who craft the foods. The winery's chief winemaker, Ben Bryant, traveled from Australia's Barossa Valley, the country's oldest wine-producing region, to host the dinner.
"Food and wine experiences are shaped by two groups: those who create the experience, and those with whom we share these moments," Bryant said. "JACOB'S CREEK™'s Our Table focuses on celebrating both groups over delicious food and wine."
The Our Table dinner featured a menu created by Ginger Pierce, Executive Chef of New York City's 1 Hotel Central Park, specifically paired with JACOB'S CREEK™ Double Barrel wines. The uniquely-crafted, red wines are first matured in traditionally roasted wine barrels and then finished in aged whisk(e)y barrels, to create a smooth finish. The Shiraz is finished in Scotch Whisky barrels and the Cabernet Sauvignon in Irish.
The menu featured tarragon roasted chicken, braised pasture-raised lamb, risotto and swordfish dishes and was finished with a vanilla bean-amaretti semifreddo dessert.
The JACOB'S CREEK™ Double Barrel range is available in major markets across the US for $19.99 and pair well with pork spare ribs, lamb chops, rib-eye and porterhouse steaks. For more information or recipe pairings, go to www.jacobscreek.com/ourtable.
