Chef Paul
The chefs at Trio have once again proven that they serve food, wine, and atmosphere at a world-class level. Chefs Paul Wireman and Will Bradof and crew hosted a Cakebread Wine Dinner to a packed dining room last night that was aflutter with accolades for both the wine and the six courses. My personal favorite...the lamb chop with sweet pea and mint risotto with a 2007 merlot. Dennis Cakebread, a member of the Cakebread wine making family, worked his way through the dining room between courses to answer questions and explain the history of his family's vineyard. Started in the early 1970s in Napa Valley by Jack and Dolores Cakebread , Cakebread Cellars began producing wine in what was then a tractor shed. Today, Cakebread Cellars covers 445 acres, boasts "green" practices, and produces outstanding wines. Thank you to the Trio team and to Cakebread Cellars for a wonderful, delicious, and memorable evening.
