Special to the Daily/Hearthstone Restaurant

Chef Michael Halpin returns to Hearthstone

After a year in Steamboat, executive chef Michael Halpin is back in the Hearthstone kitchen. He’s created a new summer appetizer to pair with the restaurant’s new selection of summer wines on the decks: Colorado cherry and fig flatbread, with Buena Vista Colorado goat cheese, Colorado lamb bacon and fresh basil.

New wines by the glass include Arindo, a crisp verdejo from Spain; and a pinot gris from California’s J Vineyards. New reds being featured are the rich and fruity Talbott Sleepy Hollow pinot noir from California and a new Syrah from the Cotes-du-Rhone in France, Saint Cosme. If wine isn’t your thing, go for the new sandia martini with fresh-pressed watermelon mashed every day at the restaurant, Sauza Hornitos tequila and an ancho sugar rim.

“People are loving them,” said Peter Bakken, managing partner with Hearthstone.
