Petros Benekos's mother taught him the importance of using supremely fresh, local ingredients to achieve the absolute best flavor profile for scratch-made recipes in Greece. Petros Manhattan Beach shares that authentic Hellenic cuisine using the bounty of Southern California. Petros has designed a five course meal of his favorite dishes specifically for the Manhattan Wine Auction. We have paired this meal with an incredible accompaniment of wines from Sanguis.
Karpouzi Salad watermelon, heirloom tomato, mint, feta & manouri cheese with greek honey
Keftedes beef meatballs braised in tomato with mashed potato
Spanakopita & Tyropita savory filled pies
Grilled Salmon lemon infused olive oil, roasted potato & summer vegetables
Tsoureki Mousse dark chocolate, fresh cream, metaxa-soaked sweet bread, toasted almonds & berries risotto
Wine of extraordinary character, complexity, and balance is a product of place, time, and the people who engage in the process of growing and making it. In 2004, when Jamie and Matthias Pippig launched Sanguis, they shared a vision for making wines that aim to capture nature's beauty through their sense of aesthetics. Sanguis wines are composed of any combination of a dozen or so grape varieties that ignore traditional rules by crossing the lines between Rhône, Burgundy, and Bordeaux varietals.
2017 The Secret - Chardonnay/Roussanne
2017 Optimist - Syrah-based composition
2017 Bossman - Syrah, Petite Sirah, Viognier
