      I became a huge Pinot fan while living in Central Otago in New Zealand (a fabulous location for that wine)… and really, anything with chocolate is a good option.

    I love chocolate with a fruity caberne! Last time I went to this event, I ended up at the Vernal Equinox celebration at Miners Foundry. What an adventurous day!!!

    It’s a really great event that gives people the chance to try local wines without spending a day driving all over the county. If you haven’t been before, it’s worth the while to check out! Thanks for sharing Erin!

      The last time I went to the this event Carolines Coffee has a coffee rub on tri-tip… so you may be able to find this combo at the event? Cheers.

      Well a wine tasting event is a great way to sample things you might try otherwise… and there’s food, so can’t go wrong there, right?

      I tried one of the Lucchesi Chardonnay’s from the barrel a few years ago and buttery was a great way to describe it, nothing like the less expensive options. Yeah for cheese.

    How about a yummy cherry pistachio biscotti from Three Forks and a nice glass of Blanc de Blanc sparkling wine from Nevada City Winery? My tastebuds are tingling….
