Last night we attended a wine tasting dinner with some good friends, at a dinner club where we are members. The meal was beautiful, the wine was delicious and the company of friends was even better. Of course, I started out the evening with my favorite - a Cosmo :-)
It was an educational evening also, with the vineyard manager of the winery, from Italy, there to tell us about the wine making process, in his delightful Italian accent. We learned about the importance of the soil and how no chemicals are used, because of their detrimental effect on the taste of the wine.
The menu was course after course of beautiful and interesting food. My favorite was the first course, of scallops in a wonderfully spicy sauce, that was complimented by the crisp Chardonnay.
The dessert was a heavenly concoction of chocolate and peanut butter and served with vanilla ice cream. The perfect ending to a wonderful dinner. I enjoy these types of tasting dinners, because the portions are small, allowing you to enjoy the different courses and the wine that is served with each. We had a great experience - well worth missing The Bachelor finale :-)
Have a great day!
