Rodney Strong Vineyards /Davis Bynum/Dinner at The Matheson

We have arrived at The Matheson.A great new restaurant in Healdsburg,California. Chef Valette's kitchen is a place of creative collaboration. The menu is an ever-changing reflection of our micro-season’s offerings. Prepared with finesse, each dish celebrates the land and the moment. Chef Matt Brimer’s menu is a modern ode to Healdsburg’s micro-seasonal ingredients, exploring the possibilities of a locally foraged fungi from a secret stand on the slopes of rolling forest, or the range of a Purple Heart tomato cultivated from a farm within walking distance to the restaurant. For Chef Brimer and team, finding the limitlessness in the specific moment is a play of craft and passion. This will be my first time at The Matheson and will be joined by Greg Morthale winemaker for Davis Bynum and Rodney Strong vineyards. Greg Morthole started working for Rodney Strong Vineyards in 2005, when he accepted a job as lab director. His acumen for winemaking became immediately clear and he quickly ascended to associate winemaker in late 2007. In the spring of 2010, Greg was promoted to Davis Bynum Winemaker, overseeing all aspects operations and winemaking. Morthole first met Davis Bynum in the fall of 2010 and their relationship became a real friendship with regular lunch dates where they talked about a wide range of topics. “Davis was always gentleman and we grew to have a great relationship.” We will have three great features for you today,and please click on the links at the bottom to enjoy the audio features. The first to produce single vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir in 1973, Davis Bynum was instrumental in bringing the prestige to Russian River Valley vineyards, still acclaimed as one of California's finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir growing regions. Today, almost 50 years later, the heritage of Davis Bynum lives on through the hand-crafted creation of wines grown exclusively in Russian River Valley. Please join us as we open a few great wines and enjoy the great dishes at The Matheson. Cheers! Click here and join us as we enjoy great food and wine .
