“Masquerades disclose the reality of souls. As long as no one sees who we are, we can tell the most intimate details of our life.” –Fernando Pessoa
There is a theatricality surrounding masquerade balls. The masks themselves lend to a sort of drama and mystery, of course, but the overall setting is what feels as though it could be pulled from a book, a movie, or a film. From “The Phantom of the Opera” to Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death,” masquerades have always sparked the imagination, and you have the opportunity to attend one for yourself.
Veritas Vineyard and Winery will be holding their annual Masked Ball on Tuesday, December 21, 2013, beginning at 7 P.M. and ending at 1 a.m. Ring in the new year with a wine and hors d’oeuvres, a five-course winemaker’s dinner, dancing until Midnight, and a toast to 2014.
Dinner promises an incredible assortment of dishes from shaved duck prosciutto to seared filet mignon and warm chocolate soufflé. Indulge in a chocolate amaretto tulip with raspberry glaze. Feast on black truffled potatoes and Swiss chard soup. All food will be prepared by renowned chef Jonathan Boroughs and will be paired with Veritas wine. Click here to read the full menu.
