On April 26, Rôtisserie Georgette in New York City — the timeless restaurant praised by the New York Times for its mastery of French classics under the direction of Chad Brauze — will host a special wine dinner honoring Stuart Smith, the founder of Smith-Madrone Winery in Napa Valley.
Launched in 1971 by brothers Stuart and Charles Smith, Smith-Madrone Winery has become known as one of Napa’s best and most reasonably priced small wineries, especially beloved by connoisseurs of California wine. Last February, The Daily Meal named Smith-Madrone Vineyards & Winery the 2014 Winery of the Year.
Next Tuesday, Rôtisserie Georgette will host two seatings for an elaborate five-course dinner featuring seven Smith-Madrone Wines, including gnocchi a la parisienne with asparagus, morels and Parmesan with the 2014 riesling and 2013 chardonnay, and “Poulet de Luxe,” (elegant roast chicken, though the term is French slang for a high-maintenance woman) stuffed with wild mushrooms and seared foie gras, will be presented with the 2012 and 2009 vintages of Smith-Madrone’s cabernet sauvignon.
A seat at the table is $140 per person, and reservations may be made by contacting Rôtisserie Georgette.
