It is a melange of delights. Although it is a working farm and vineyard it also boasts an amazing in house bakery that is only open on Saturday and Sunday. I hear they pretty much sell out both days.
When you walk through the doors you are greeted with a blast of bakery aromas mixed with the heady roasted coffee. I am a bit of a coffee snob and let me tell you they know how to make it here. I can't wait until summer to go back and sit on that deck.
They grow grapes used for Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir and Seigerrebe types of wine. I have never heard of Seigerrebe before but found out from One Rich Wine Guy's blog that it is a cool weather grape varietal, crisp and cool and similar to a Pinot Gris with pear and citrus flavors. Did I mention I can't wait until summer? I will have to find some wine made from this type of grape.
Saison (Ingrid Lehwald & Frédéric Desbiens) have won the Black Tie Business Achievers Award locally. One is a chef and the other a baker. Together. Ooh la la, they are perfect.
You can buy many breads, quiches, French onion soup and a bevy of baked treats. Fresh eggs too.
Biscotti and Cinnamon Pecan buns.
I had a raspberry, white chocolate scone that was so light and tender. I have never had a better scone in my life. I was so busy munching down on it that I never took a picture.
Some savory breakfast items too.
L-R: Tarte Flambe with onion.bacon and gruyere cheese and sour cream; Roasted tomato with roasted tomatoes, parmesan and garlic; and last but not least Roasted garlic, parmesan and almond foccacia.
Granola and preserves too. Imagine some of their freshly baked bread slathered with some Pear & Pinot Gris Compote.
Line ups move quickly and people wait patiently for a table to empty out. When the weather improves they can sit out on the deck and enjoy the fields below.
I know I will be back here every chance I get. I am dreaming of fluffy soft scones filled with raspberry and white chocolate.
