Autumn harvest dinner at Roy’s

Every so often, Roy’s in Hawaii Kai will have special wine dinners to showcase a specific winemaker, and then will pair foods around the featured wines. Last night, the restaurant had a wine dinner with a different theme: An autumn harvest menu paired with Roy’s private label wines.

This was my first time to one of their wine dinners, and I was a little intimidated, since I don’t know my way around wines. I mean, I drink wine and know the basics, and I know what I like. But beyond that, I couldn’t give you recommendations on pairings like real oenophiles. As it turned out, many of the people who came were like me, so we could just sit back and enjoy the meal without thinking too hard. Here’s what we had:

We started the evening with a glass of Roy’s prosecco. Always a good start!
