Black Cat Organic Farm is thrilled to announce the opening of our new dinner and event space on the farm. Our team spent several years transforming turn-of-the-century farm buildings into atmospheric, spacious stages for special events — everything from celebrations like weddings and reunions to corporate retreats, winemaker dinners, seasonal celebrations and classes.
“We have worked hard for more than a decade to bring the farm to diners’ plates. Now, we are elated to invite guests to our farm,” says Eric. “These buildings were radiant with character when we purchased the property, but they needed a fair bit of attention. Today’s renovated structures and the surrounding grounds honor the property’s farm heritage, while also serving as beautiful, functional spaces for events and guests.”
Black Cat Organic Farm anticipates hosting a wide diversity of events this year into the fall, and plans on holding even more events on the farm in 2020, beginning in the spring.
“Taking care of guests is the foundation of all that we do at Black Cat,” says Jill. “We have dreamed of inviting guests to our farm for years, and we are so excited that the dream finally has become reality.”

Rosé On the Farm Dinner With Provence Winery Domaines Ott and Winemaker Christophe Renard
Savor six exquisite wines, enjoy them with a five-course meal, and spend time with Domaines Ott winemaker Christophe Renard for a special evening at Black Cat Organic Farm on July 22.
“Domaines Ott is a special place, crafting nothing but single-vineyard wines in Provence,” says Black Cat Bistro sommelier Drew Duggan. “In my opinion, these are the best rosés in the world.”
Domaines Ott’s three estates include Chateau de Selle, founded in 1912 with the goal of creating world-class rosé, and Clos Mireille. The estates are two of only 18 Cru Classé estates in Provence. In addition, Chateau Romassan crafts spectacular wine from the acclaimed Bandol region.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. at Black Cat Organic Farm’s new dinner and events space, where Chef Eric Skokan leads guests on a 30-minute tour of the farm.
Following the tour, guests enjoy passed canapés and rosé on the garden-lined patio, with staggering views of snow-capped mountains.
Guests then are invited into the main space, a turn-of-the-century barn converted into an enchanting dinner space. Here, Black Cat staff serves five courses prepared by Eric, each paired with a Domaines Ott wine.
Throughout, winemaker Christophe Renard talks about winemaking at Domaines Ott, and how people in the region enjoy rosé and other wines with different foods year-round.
The event includes three rosés, one white wine, one red, and a sparkling rosé from Roederer Estate, which is affiliated with Domaines Ott.
While the menu will reflect what is fresh from the fields that day, we know dishes will include our house-cured Proscuitto, heritage Mulefoot hogs and heritage lamb.
The event costs $120, plus tax and gratuity.
We look forward to sharing our farm and Domaines Ott spectacular wines with you during this magical evening of conversation and cheer.
