Dining and Wine
Meals, wine pairings, and spirits, enjoyed in our public/dining areas are part of your inclusive rate. The rate also includes any meals you wish to be enjoyed in your guest room. Your stay at Twin Farms is customized for you, and the culinary experience, in particular, is an integral part of your visit. Since we do not have menus on property, we invite you to share your dietary preferences or restrictions with our culinary team to help them create your customized dining experience. This can be done through our online concierge form, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on the phone at 802-234-9999.
SAMPLE SEASONAL MENUS
Our dining philosophy at Twin Farms revolves around the changing seasons, locally-grown herbs and vegetables available each day, and your dietary preferences. The chef selected offering changes daily – and are always presented with the freshest ingredients available, but never presented on a menu. Like the art and design throughout the property, each dish becomes a delightful surprise. Enjoy meals in the main dining room, on the terrace beside the garden, or request private service in your cottage or suite, atop Ski Hill, along the trail, or anywhere else on the property.
Wine Manager/Sommelier Keven Ring selects several distinctive wines from our 15,000 bottle collection to pair with lunch and dinner. Our cellar ranges from well-known Californian and French estates to nouveau vintners from across the globe. Wines are carefully married with the meals specially created for you by Chef Nathan Rich and his team. We are delighted to introduce your palate to remarkable new flavors as well as reunite it with some of your long standing favorites during your stay with us.
To supplement our exceptional inclusive wine program, we are very fortunate to offer a limited selection of world-renowned premium wines. Whether celebrating a special occasion or simply choosing to treat yourself to a rare vintage, we invite you to select from our Reserve Wine List.
Start the day by indulging in the myriad of possibilities. The only problem is choosing. Begin with freshly baked pastries with jam made from berries picked outside the Main House, fruits in season, and fluffy omelets. Returning guests love the lemon soufflé pancakes filled with fresh Vermont strawberries.
Lunch at Twin Farms can take many forms: choose from a menu in the dining room, a boxed lunch to take on an activity, or even a picnic in the woods. Savor porcini poached Vermont turkey and wild mushroom lentil ragout with wine pairings in the dining room. Or explore hidden groves of the property with a picnic of cold poached Maine lobster with lemons, tamari grilled Cavendish quail and ginger apple slaw, along with five local potatoes in truffle vinaigrette, or Fable Farm heirloom tomatoes with ricotta, pine nuts, and opal basil leaves.
Champagne beside the fireplace. Imported beer and a game of croquet or pool. Martinis on your private screened porch. A tasting of Vermont cheeses. Anything you wish.
The culinary team serves the highest-quality ingredients from local providers in the candle-lit dining room of the Main House, steeped in rustic elegance. You may also choose to dine in front of a fire in your cottage or suite. Or reserve the Wine Cellar for an intimate and original celebration.
