Need Wine Help for Schwa

Drosa | Aug 9, 2007 10:33 AM

I finally scored a reservation for Schwa. Now I need some help with a wine recommendation.

It appears that the current nine course menu skews toward vegetarian: eggplant (red pepper, san simon), sunchoke (orange, allspice), quail egg ravioli (ricotta, brown butter, parmigiano reggianno), parfait (quince, celery root, pink peppercorn), risotto (savory, peach), seitan (pomegranate, turnips, queso de valdeon), tofu (persimmons, chestnut), cheese.

With all the citrus and savories, I'm guessing that I should bring a white wine. But I really have no idea. Has anyone tried this menu yet? Any thoughts on some wine choices that worked or didn't work? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks for your help and I'll be happy to report back.
