Hugo’s Frog Bar in Naperville Hosts Wine Dinner

Hugo’s Frog Bar & Fish House in Naperville announces the continuation of their monthly Wine Event series with a special five-course sit-down wine dinner featuring wines from Louis M. Martini.  Dinner will be led by Sommelier Christopher Rowell from Louis M. Martini Winery and courses will be prepared by Executive Chef Jose Sosa.  

Louis M. Martini Winery’s philosophy is that great winemaking begins with great vineyards.  Their wines express the best characteristics of Cabernet, the personality of the special places where the grapes are grown, and the vision and skill of the winemaker in blending balanced, engaging, and memorable wines.

The five-course event features courses and pairings like Pan Seared Wild Alaskan Halibut crusted in porcini mushrooms with watercress purée with Louis M. Martini Chardonnay, Pan Roasted Duck Breast in an ancho maple glaze with apple maiche salad and apple potato puree and cranberry demi glaze with Louis M. Martini Napa Cabernet, and Gibsons Prime Angus Strip Steak with Yukon gold potato gnocchi and roasted shallot puree in a red wine sauce reduction with Louis M. Martini Alexander Reserve Cabernet among others.  Complete menu is below.
