Meals and Wines at Goosewing Ranch
Most meals are served family style in the Main Lodge where we have 3 chefs on staff. The new outdoor kitchen and dining area is a wonderful place for all to enjoy meals and family time. The outdoor dining area features a wood burning oven, covered seating, lighting, and propane above head heaters. Dinners will include fresh salad bar, at least two main entree options, vegetarian option, gluten free option and Kid’s option. We can accommodate dietary restrictions with advanced notice. Carbonated drinks are available for purchase or included in cocktail prices.
Breakfast is complete with eggs cooked to order, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French Toast, and daily specials. In addition, there is a continental buffet with cereal, fruit and homemade pastries.
Lunches are usually trail side picnics, but hot lunches are also prepared if you decide to stay at the ranch during the day. We can also provide picnic lunches if you would like to go off on your own for the afternoon. Picnic lunches are your choice of deli sandwich, chips, fruit, granola, and cookie.
Dinners are themed, and can include Prime Rib Night, Southwest Night, French Night, Cowboy Night (steaks), and Angler Night (trout and salmon). Depending on the cuisine, meals may be served plated or buffet style. Starting the summer of 2015 we will be offering two choices for dinner each night. As well as accommodating dietary restrictions, requests, and a kids option. Once a week we do an open fire cookout with the “dutch oven” by the river. Enjoy an evening river side and under the stars with friends and family while enjoying live entertainment! We encourage families to be together, but will be offering a kids cookout and adults dinner throughout the week.
We are pleased to offer you a variety of wines from France and South America in keeping with both the French heritage of the area, and the owner. We are dedicated to giving you the best value possible and our prices reflect that. Wine by the bottle is offered at retail price, while wine by the glass echoes restaurant price. We would be more than happy to stock a special bottle of wine for you to enjoy during your stay if you let us know before your arrival.
Les Felines Grenache/Merlot 2010 (Southern France)
45% Grenache, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet, and 10% Syrah. The Felines Rouge is all lush, grapy Grenache with extra depth from the Merlot and Syrah. A delicious bistro red.
Pascual Toso Malbec 2013 (Argentina)
This wine continues to over-deliver in the quality to price ratio. Back again is the smooth, fleshiness, the bright red cherry fruit, hint of ripe blueberry and a touch of earthy smoke. Partially aged in American oak for depth and complexity, this is ready to be enjoyed tonight with anything from barbecued steak to pasta.
Casillero del Diablo Carmenere 2010 (Chile)
Originating in the Rapel Valley, this wine has a deep, dark red color. Its aromas are fruity, ripe raspberries and blackberries, chocolate and also coffee and toast notes. In mouth, black plums and spices appear on a backdrop of toasted American oak and a smooth, solid structure.
Le Pre Baron Gamay 2012 ( France, Loire)
Brilliant ruby in the glass, this wine is brimming with fresh fruit and beautiful balance. To me, much more complex and nuanced that what we find in Beaujolais.
Cotes de Blaye Merlot/Cabernet 2009 (France, Bordeaux)
This 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet is aged 80% in steel and 20% oak. It is rich and full of deep lingering character showing dark cherry and brambly berry aromas. Tasters are charmed by its flavor of toasty blackberry, plumb and vanilla bean with lingering notes of coffee, clove and dark chocolate covered cherries.
Chateau La Grave Privilege 2007 (Southern France)
Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre blend to create this beauty. Aged in oak for 12 months the wine features a deep rich robe of garnet with violet tints. The nose is explosive with aromas of cherries in brandy, spices and vanilla, together with crystallized fruit (blackcurrant and blueberry), cocoa and violet. The mouth is very supple in feel, round and fruity. It is harmonious with a hint of mint revealing extremely fine tannins.
Bilogia 2007 (Spain)
A 50/50 blend of Monastrell and Tempranillo grapes carefully selected from the best plots of the estate. Aging for twelve months in oak barrels highlights its unique character. Aroma of toast with notes of liquorices and coffee. In mouth, the fruit perfectly blends with the oak, showing sweet tannins followed by a round, fresh and complex structure. Long and intense aftertaste.
Netzl Carnuntum Cuvee 2010 (Austria)
40% Zweigelt, 40% Blaufraenkisch, 20% Merlot harvested by hand, grape-and single-berry selection, fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, malo-lactic fermentation and short ripening in big oak barrels. This wine exhibits ruby garnet and youthful reflexes, red berries in the nose and herbal nuances, fresh and pleasing palate, smooth and ripe tannins.
Chofflet Givry Pinot Noir 2009 (France, Burgundy)
The Chofflet-Valdenaire estate, located in the hillside hamlet of Russily, has been in their family for over 100 years. The domaine possesses very well placed vineyards with an average age of 25 years. The estate’s Givry AOC comes from several vineyard parcels. The grapes are entirely hand-harvested and 100% destemmed. It is aged half in tank, half in two-three year casks for one year before bottling. This wine is rich and dripping with aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry and spice. There’s plenty of flesh to coat the tannins, and a lingering finish.
90 pts ~ Wine Spectator
Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 (California, Sonoma)
19% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec. A quintessential Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010 is defined by approachability and elegance. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and cassis are supported by subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla from oak aging. The mouth feel is soft, silky and robing with a seemingly never ending finish.
Bouchaud Muscadet sur lie 2011 (France, Brittany)
Bouchaud is an articulate and skilled producer, both in the vineyards and in the cellar. Bright and mineral, this Muscadet has greater richness and depth due to low vineyard yields, aging sur lie for over 6 months.
Mondavi Pinot Grigio 2012 (California, Central Coast)
This pinot grigio boasts an enticing aroma of fresh, ripe pears with appealing peach, vanilla, and spice scents adding complexity. A pretty wine with a round, creamy palate and crisp entry, it has the typical tonic water, pear, and floral grassy flavors that culminate into a lush, silk-textured finish—inviting pairings with food.
Cotes de Blaye Sauvignon Blanc 2010 (France, Bordeaux)
This wine is made with no oak allowing the zesty varietal characters. The nose is a good myriad of citrus, grape fruity and fresh tropical fruit aromas. The palate is fresh, good acidity with a clean crisp finish.
Kendall-Jackson Riesling Reserve 2012 (California, Central Coast)
Deliciously crisp with lots of fruity and subtle spice notes. Layers of apricot, peach, and orange blossom mingle with bursts of aromatic jasmine and a delightful finish.
Pouilly-Fuisse Chardonnay 2010 (France, Burgundy)
The Morat’s vineyards are all on the steep, east facing amphitheater slopes in the very heart of the Pouilly-Fuisse region. The soils are a mixture of clay and limestone, adding complexity to the wines. The wine is raised entirely on its lees in barrels for 10 to 12 months (60% stainless steel, 40% old oak).
Steininger Grüner Veltliner Sekt 2010 (Austrian sparkling)
Yellowish-gold; bouquet of pepper; tricky and noble; perfect mousseux; aroma of Darjeeling-tea, blossoms and pepper; young and fruity freshness and enchanting grace. Such a deliciously cool wine!
Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut (California, North Coast Napa Valle )
A toasty version, rich and creamy, with vanilla, hazelnut and citrus notes weaving through the rich texture. It’s on the soft side, yet with a lovely, mouthwatering finish. A result of the carefully chosen infusion of terroir and reserve wines, the finish is long. Imparting to the finish is lightness from Chardonnay, fruitiness from Pinot Noir and roundness provided by Pinot Meunier.
