April 4: Wine Country Dinner

April 4: Wine Country Dinner: “Wine Country Cooking” is a Mediterranean-influenced way of cooking and eating that celebrates seasonal produce, fruit infused olive oils, wild caught seafood, grass-fed cattle, artisanal cheeses and rustic breads served with a perfectly paired glass of wine.  We will use some wonderful products to try to illustrate this lifestyle and technique.

April 4: Wine Country Dinner

Saturday Farm to Table Dinners: We are authentically Farm to Table, growing much of our produce with caring attention. We are as local as local gets and of the season to the moment. Beechwood Inn offers fine dining in the North Georgia Mountains every Saturday featuring Chef’s Tasting Dinners paired to fine wines. Each menu is pre-selected by our chefs based on what is seasonal and available that day. Most of our seasonal foods are organic and natural, many from sustainable North Georgia farms, orchards, dairies and vineyards. Reservations are needed. The Inn features Northeast Georgia’s only Wine Spectator Award of Excellence wine list.

Dinner is $99 per person, plus tax and gratuity and includes one glass each of the suggested wines; additional wine is available from our wine list. For reservations contact the Beechwood Inn at (706) 782-5485. Mentioned wines are suggested pairings, actual pairings depend on availability. Please let us know of dietary restrictions at least 48 hours in advance.

From TripAdvisor: The dinner was incredible. Dave, the innkeeper, has such a passion for the food, wine and guest rooms. He cares so incredibly much about the food source, how it’s made and its proper pairing with wine. We’ve had such an incredible experience. Everything was exquisite. If you care about truly fresh, locally grown, carefully paired wines, and unmatched hospitality, eat, or eat and stay here. Trust me.
