Millbrook Vineyard & Winery is hosting “In the Vineyard Summer Dining Series” and begins this summer with Surf and Turf on Saturday, June 25.
The menu for June 25 is created and prepared by Crew Restaurant in Poughkeespie. Your evening will begin at 6:30pm with live jazz music as you enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres at Millbrook’s Water’s Edge Pavilion.  You will be sipping on Millbrook’s 2010 Tocai Friulano and my favorite, 2010 Unoaked Chardonnay along with their Hunt Country Rosé paired with Chilled Gazpacho Shooters, Bruschetta with Fresh Local Goat Cheese and Herb Marinated Mushrooms and Local Tomato, House-made Mozzarella and Local Basil Skewers. 
At 7:30 the party will move to the vineyard.  Tables will be set among the vines and the wine selections for the evening are Millbrook’s best –  2008 Chardonnay Block Two West along with 2007 Cabernet Franc Proprietor’s Special Reserve.  You will be dining on
