September Wine Tasting
Saturday evening was our monthly wine tasting. The event was again, a great success. Lots of good wine, food and conversation. This month's theme was "Red Blends Rule" and rule they did. Not only was there a great selection of wine, they were all very affordable. All, with the exception for the fine Port we had for dessert, would be available retail for under $15! The wines were accompanied by equally accessible and affordable food offerings that included, roasted pork, beef sliders, bbq chicken, mushroom risotto with tri-tip roast and of course dessert, chocolate profiteroles with chocolate cream. Yum, Yum! Needless to say, no one left hungry. The evening was facilitated by Lindsay Melton from United Distributors. She did a fabulous job and was a wealth of information. Thank you Lindsay. This month's tasting was hosted by Jake and Teresa Jacobson owners of Azalea Inn. The tastings are presented jointly by Azalea Inn, Green Palm Inn and, of course, yours truly. We all three pitch in with the cooking and planning to offer a fun, relaxing evening of wine, food and a little education. If you haven't had the chance to try one of these events or have and want to come again, just give us a call to check on the next date. Traditionally, they are held on the third Saturday of the month but they are subject to change depending on schedules. Next month's theme will be "Take Me to Bed Reds" and will be on October 23. I know, sounds a little naughty but fun, right? Anyway, it should be another good time. Call now to secure your spot!
