From Linda Roth Associates, your public relations concierege:

Davis, W.V. (March 12, 2008)—West Virginia has developed a reputation for growing an array of colorful produce, producing outstanding artisanal foods, and serving up classic American fare with charm. Canaan Valley Resort looks to celebrate all of those things and more at their second Gourmet Wine Weekend April 4-5, 2008. The first event was held in the fall of 2007 and is back in the spring by popular demand.

The three day weekend offers guests a taste of wines from around the world paired with dishes created by Executive Chef Nemat Odeh, C.E.C. The Friday night Wine and Dine Reception will feature wines created by some of the world’s best producers as well as wines from around West Virginia and the mid-Atlantic. Chef action stations will whip up edible delights inspired by foods of the Mediterranean, Rustic Appalachia, and Japan. The celebration will continue into the night as guests are invited poolside to Open That Bottle, and pop some of their favorite wines from home to share.

On Saturday, the education begins with a course titled “De-Mystifying Wine,” led by wine expert and columnist John Brown. Perfect for the beginner, the class serves to inform guests about the basics of tasting and appreciating wine. Immediately following, Chef Odeh will prepare a pairings luncheon, matching specific wines with some traditional and non-traditional wine food. In the afternoon participants, are invited to join farmer Lee Jones, owner of The Chef’s Garden, Inc. for a presentation about organic and natural foods being grown in West Virginia. The reception following will pair his foods with natural and biodynamic wines.

And what wine weekend would be complete without a six course gourmet dinner paired with exceptional hand-selected wines? The festivities conclude with this truly special event led by John Brown and Chef Odeh.

The package price for the weekend with two nights stay at the Bear Paw Lodge is $599 per person. For more information contact David Bostic at (304) 866-4121. Visit http://www.canaanresort.com for more information.

"Hand-selected" always cracks me up. I once tried selecting wine with my prostate, but it was terribly uncomfortable.
