Great combo! Vilafonte Cab Sauv from Paarl South Africa with rib-eye steak ala Jay
Had a lot of fun @rosebudcountryinn leading a wine tasting and education tour of French wine regions. Lineup included a Bourgogne Cremant, Bordeaux Sauv-Sem, Languedoc White Blend, and a Loire Vouvray. For reds we tasted a Loire Cab Franc, a St Emilion and a Ventoux (Southern Rhone blend). For dinner we featured an Alsatian Riesling and a Bourgogne Pinot Noir. All good $20 bottles from @crowfoot_wine
The downside of a 3 car driveway. Snow pile is over 7 feet high and still growing!
Great wine tasting with friends tonight. Flight 1 was Rieslings from around the world; flight 2 was variety of reds; flight 3 was big Italian Reds. Thanks @gwgiesbrecht for wonderful hosting and delicious pairings!
We enjoyed a wonderful @checkmatewinery winemakers dinner @calpeteclub last evening. Philip Mcgahan is making world class Chardonnay in a low intervention style and true to its terroir. If you haven’t tried them you are missing something great from our own backyard #bcwine #checkmatewinery
Here’s a Malbec worth meeting (Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Malbec 2012); after a couple of hours decanting it started to open up and was a treat of rich, complex dark fruit and earthiness and a long finish. Probably should have waited a decade but thanks to the kindness of Sara we enjoyed it with our pasta dinner tonight. #catenazapata @denances
18 and counting. Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
Christmas Dinner with our Family. Only about half of our 18 showing in the picture. Blue Mountain Chardonnay was fabulous with the turkey #bluemountainvineyard #road13 #bcwine
What do you do when the Christmas sticky buns didn’t rise on the counter overnight because it was too cold ... you put them in the dryer for 25 minutes to start the rising before baking in the oven. Worked perfectly! #lgdryer @lgcanada
Great pairings with our Christmas Eve Chinese and Thai dinner. The JJ Prum Spatlese couldn’t have paired better #jjprum #cotedebrouilly
Couldn’t resist sharing this beautiful sunrise #ouryyc
Delicious Haut-Medoc paired with lamb at @anewtable. Fabulous food and wine throughput the entire dinner
Tasty Carneros Chardonnay from @sonoma_loeb paired tastefully with black truffle pesto risotto with grilled chicken breast (see photo 2). Chardonnay had tropical, stone fruit and citrus flavours and good acidity in balance with its oak
