Let us introduce you to ... us

There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes at a restaurant. Selecting the ingredients and the various wines that we serve is only part of the fun. And we want to share with you some of the thought that goes into our various selections.

We hope that you enjoy these short pieces about our food, wine, events, and more. If there's something that you've seen at The Establishment that you'd like to know more about, email chronicle@establishmentchs.com and let us know. Maybe you'll see it here next month!

Something about Amarone della Valpolicella that you probably didn’t know: made with the proprietary grapes of  Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella, the fruit must be fully ripe and in perfect condition when picked. The grapes are then placed in single layers on bamboo mats and placed in a drying room called a fruttai. The grapes remain in the drying room for 3-4 months. This leads to a reduction in the level of acidity and heightens flavor concentration.⁠

This wine hits an especially pretty balance that underlines the care given to preserving the best qualities of the fruit. It pours from the bottle with a darkly concentrated appearance and displays blackberry, plum, spice, tar and leather.⁠ .⁠ Complete wine list at EstablishmentCHS.com/menu

Grifalco is an excellent producer of Aglianico del Vulture. Owned by the Piccin family, who were originally wine producers in Tuscany, they decided that southern Italy, Basilicata in particular, was more promising. Notes of blackberry, black cherry, and licorice carry this well-balanced wine which drinks tremendously alongside anything from the grill.⁠
