We recently celebrated Steve’s daughter, Jessica’s birthday at Copper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant. Cooper’s Hawk has two locations in Orlando, one at 8005 International Dr. and the location we visited at 529 N. Alafaya Trail, or visit https://chwinery.com/locations/florida/orlando-at-waterford-lakes
This location was nestled in a large shopping complex that’s in the style of an outdoor mall, with an eclectic variety of restaurants, shops, and a movie cineplex. Here’s a peek into Cooper’s Hawk.
When you enter, you see the wine bar that offers the tastings. All around you are beautiful displays of wine, accessories, and a dessert case filled with chocolate-covered strawberries and chocolate truffles that would be awesome to pair with a dessert wine. The dining room is open and spacious with contemporary decor.
The menu offers a suggestive wine pairing to go with the dish of your choice. The Roasted Vegetable Flatbread with Goat Cheese and a Balsamic Glaze was delicious. I chose the Chicken Saltimbocca with Asparagus and Artichokes. My favorite was the Bruschetta with Burrata, Prosciutto, Arugula, and Balsamic Glaze. That dish went so fast, I wasn’t able to get a picture fast enough!
Happy Birthday Jessica, and thank you for sharing this special night with your father and me.
