The Wines in the Wild homeINstead party box will spice up dinner with all of the ingredients needed for a fun evening to celebrate food and wine in the comfort of home. Island chefs are designing dishes made especially for at-home enjoyment.
There will be Caprese a la Cielo, Coq au Vin from Sweet Melissa’s Cafe, Asian Short Ribs prepared by Caterer Leslie Adams and a Moroccan- spiced Roasted Fall Vegetable Melange created by Malia and Jeff Samson from Spoondrift. Bailey’s General Store has chosen a Sauvignon Blanc and a Zinfandel, included in the party box, to complement these foods.
Platinum Sponsors Joyce and Don Rice are looking forward to a special meal at home Nov. 13. “I especially love that there is a vegetarian option for the homeINstead menu,” said Joyce.
The Rices are also excited about the 50/50 drawing. “We’ve added a very special feature with a 50/50 plus 10 Drawing,” said Don. “There will still be the traditional 50/50 cash drawing but now there is the chance to win one of ten lots of five bottles of wine, with each lot valued at no less than $160. And as an added bonus, for each $100 purchase, you will get one chance for a drawing for a magnum of 2008 Dom Perignon, a $550 value.”
Tickets are $25 or five for $100. A party box purchase is not required to enter this drawing. Please note that wine cannot be shipped to an out of state winner.
To purchase a party box or 50/50 tickets, go to www.winesinthewildsccf.com. A box for one person is $130; for two people, it’s $210 per box. Boxes must be reserved by Nov. 6 and will be available for drive by, touchless pickup Nov. 13 at the Bailey Homestead, 1300 Periwinkle Way.
