About: Silver Oak Wine Pairing Dinner at Market Place
The Market Place and MetroWines present "A Dinner with Silver Oak Family Wines" on Thursday, June 27th starting 6pm at Market Place, 20 Wall Street in Asheville. The evening will be hosted by Jeff Flood from Silver Oak.
Five seasonally courses paired with five award winning wines from Silver Oak and Twomey Winery. A sparkling wine will start the evening at 6pm as we gather to be seated for dinner at 6:30.
"A set of tickets to dinner would be a great gift for Father's Day," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines.
The evening is $75 not including tax and gratuity. Seating is limited. Please reserve your seat by calling Market Place at (828) 252-4162. All featured wines will be available for purchase at a special event price and available for pick up @MetroWines.
Market Place Says: We are a group of cooks, farmers, waiters, cheese-makers, organizers, ranchers, brewers and dishwashers who share a common philosophy about how we eat and in a larger sense, about life.

We believe in the importance of working locally, not just using ingredients from our surrounding area, but also in our contribution to the community. The success of our restaurant has always been closely entwined with the health and progress of our community. For 35 years we have supported the arts, local-needs and education programs.

Our clients have returned over the decades, we hope in part because we have always tried to treat them as family… and friends. Some might say, our food tastes good, perhaps even memorable. Each day, we do our utmost to prepare and present fresh food in a creative manner with a craftsman’s hand. Working in the most sustainable way possible is important.

The Market Place has been a fixture in downtown Asheville since 1979. Though it’s beginnings rose in the streams and mountains of western North Carolina – a place of mountain trout and small farms – it also has a hand and heart inspired by traditions far from our borders. This mélange of local food prepared with other worldly traditions of the table may have helped the Market Place garner national attention but the keen reverence for the heritage and roots of Appalachia has always remained at the center of what we do.

About Silver Oak:

Silver Oak complements winery-owned fruit with grapes from top independent growers throughout the Napa and Alexander Valley appellations, giving our winemaking team access to the highest-caliber fruit to make Cabernet of the finest quality.

“We have yet to make our best bottle of wine.” This is a saying we have at Silver Oak that embodies our commitment to quality, continuous improvement and excellence. Our pursuit of making our best bottle of wine continues as in 2015 we became the sole owners of a Missouri-based cooperage we proudly call The Oak Cooperage.

No detail goes overlooked in our pursuit of excellent wine, and that includes cork quality. Associate Winemaker Christiane Schleussner pioneered the use of the “dry soak” method with a team of researchers from Cork Supply USA, and this method has given Silver Oak one of the lowest cork taint rates on large-format bottles in the wine industry: 0.53% cork taint versus the 4% industry standard.

Bottle shock is real. It takes a full-bodied red wine 12 months to fully recover and show the full expression of fruit that it had before bottling. We give wine more time in the bottle, and the end result is a food-friendly, moderate-alcohol (13–14.1%) Cabernet that is drinkable upon release.
