We attended a food and wine pairing dinners at Belhurst Castle and Winery with Hosmer Wine Makers. We were guided through a tasting of six Hosmer wines that had been paired with six chef-created tasting dishes.Â We were seated in a private dining room in the historic castle that was built in 1885. The room had windows on one side of the room with a view of Seneca Lake. The room had the original wood trim and fireplace from 1885. Aaron and Katie Roisen were our host for the evening, educating us in the history of wines from the Finger Lakes area including special tasting notes for each dish we tasted. We had a sparkling wine, followed by a roasted beet salad which was paired with a semi dry Riesling. The grilled Halibut was paired with a Pinot Gris, while the Veal Cheeks and Cabbage was served with Cabernet Franc. A dark chocolate raspberry cake was paired with a raspberry royal wine. Before and after dinner the Roisens were very happy to answer questions about the pairings and any questions we had about wines.
