Angelina Restaurant in downtown Green Bay is bringing their fantastic fare to Captain’s Walk Winery. Join us for a wine dinner on October 23. Five courses of authentic Italian cuisine will be paired with five of our award-winning wines. That means ten that things you’ll love to try!
Angelina Restaurant treats dining as an art form. Every meal is made from scratch with the finest ingredients. Angelina came to the United States in 1993 from Italy and her skills as a cook, her love for her homeland dishes, and her eagerness to share her talents are what inspired her to start Angelina Restaurant. It’s located at 117 North Adams Street, just a few blocks away from our winery. We are so excited to invite our neighbor over for our second wine dinner of 2016!
Is your mouth watering yet? Check out the menu…
The first course will be Antipasto Misto, classic Italian appetizers including bruschetta, caprese, and prosciutto crudo. Paired with the antipasto will be Sauvignon Blanc, a sumptuously fruit-forward ensemble loaded with mouthwatering aromas and flavors that include gooseberry, melon, fig, pear, apricot, passion fruit and guava.
The second course, Pasta Al Forno, will follow. It is comprised of a homemade Bolognese sauce and béchamel tossed with penne pasta, finished with Parmesan cheese, and baked. We bring out our most prized Italian red for this course – Sangiovese! This bold red shows how rich and supple the varietal can be. Sangiovese offers a subtle raisin nose with concentrated aromas of black cherry, brierberry and a hint of anise.
Enjoy Insalata Siciliana for the third course. This includes a spring mix, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, capers, artichoke, kalamata olives and balsamic vinaigrette. With it we will pour our 7 Seas, a rosé with vibrant aromas of fresh pear, ripe apple and aromatic apricot.
Can you feel your tummy getting full already? Not quite yet, we have two more courses to go!
The fourth course will be Pollo Alla Zia Tina, an 8-ounce chicken breast lightly floured, sautéed, and finished with brandy and cream served with proscuitto-wrapped asparagus. The wine pairing will be our un-traditional barrel-fermented Chardonnay. Chardonnays tend to be barrel- OR stainless steel-fermented but this one is both; a blend of barrel and tank fermented wine with great complexity of both fruit and lightly toasted French oak.
We’ll finish with a fifth course of Tiramisu. This classic Italian dessert, with ladyfingers dipped in espresso and brandy, is smothered in mascarpone cheese and cocoa. Our Captain’s Mistress, a brandy-fortified Marquette from our Door County vineyard, will leave your taste buds asking for another night of pairings from Angelina Restaurant and Captain’s Walk Winery!
