    It's grape expectations at D.O.C. Wine Bar.

    You've always heard that the best way to try wines is with food, so now's your chance. D.O.C. Wine Bar in Lincoln Park will host a wine dinner with Demetria Estate, a biodynamic winery in California's Santa Ynez Valley, on Thursday, Nov. 13.

    Demetria winemaker Michael Roth will lead guests through the dinner featuring a custom menu by D.O.C. chef Andrew Easterday. The meal will consist of five courses paired with various varietals. A Demetria Estate chardonnay will be paired with pan-seared sea scallops, orange-amaretto reduction and bosc pears, while a pinot blanc comes with arugula salad with shaved fennel, granny smith apples, pancetta and whipped gorgonzola. Two pinot noir vintages will be the focus of main courses: A 2006 pinot noir is paired with Alaskan coho salmon, a sherry-mushroom vinaigrette, sauteed spinach and a parsnip puree, while a 2005 pinot noir joins a cassoulet with braised duck, duck confit, assorted sausages and beans. Dessert features chef Easterday's homemade chocolate truffles.

    The Demetria Estate wine dinner will take place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Reserve your $60 seat now by calling D.O.C. at 773-883-5101.
