Kermit Lynch Wines and Farm to Table Experiences

How is it possibly June already? I feel like I was just taking down my Christmas tree and binge watching Mistresses during the snowstorm! The year is moving on too quickly and I am just trying to enjoy this summer!

In the beginning of May, I attended a Farm-to-Table wine dinner at Restaurant 17 with Kermit Lynch wines.  Most recently, I visited Heirloom restaurant in Charlotte so I figured I would do a little Farm-to-Table Roundup and share my pictures with you from these two amazing restaurants in the Carolinas.  I hope you enjoy… Have a great week everyone!

Kermit Lynch Wine Dinner- Restaurant 17 

Chef Greg McPhee

Travelers Rest, SC

Chef McPhee will be at Restaurant 17 through July, and then will be at the Anchorage, his new venture in the West Village which is creating a great buzz among Greenville foodies. Visit Restaurant 17 before he leaves and stay tuned for more updates on farm-to-table restaurants you must not miss!


This cocktail with smoked rosemary. It was a blood orange something.  Just go get one. I beg you.




The view at Restaurant 17 is amazing.  It is one of my favorite places to sit and have a glass of wine.

And a cheese plate.

This was brought out for us and not on the menu so I am struggling to remember this chocolatey, fudgey goodness.  I do know that it had caramelized rose petals and it melted in my mouth. I could have basically eaten the whole thing but that would have been just rude for everyone sharing!
