Pippin Hill certified horticulturalist, Diane Burns, has proof that good things come in small packages. Consider her potent, petite Mara des Bois strawberries—ripe morsels of candy-like flavor. Burns first planted the woodland variety 2 years ago, growing them from bare root, and discovered Pippin Hill’s climate and soil make for a veritable berry bonanza. Besides their visual appeal and mouthwatering sweetness, the Mara des Bois produces fruit from early June (June’s Strawberry Full Moon is named for signaling traditional strawberry picking time) until the first frost, which means berries star on Chef Ian’s tasting menu all summer long.
Join us on June 14th for our Strawberry Moon Wine Dinner (featuring strawberries in every course) to taste for yourself why this little superstar berry garnered a feature in Southern Living. An evening of full moon and full flavor, not to be missed!
In addition to berries, Chef Ian Rynecki and his culinary team will be showcasing our produce from our Kitchen Garden, and winemaker Michael Shaps will pair these with his selections and present each wine.
Wine dinner is rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the dinner will be hosted indoors at Pippin Hill. Attire is smart casual.
