Wine Wednesday!

While Wednesday is usually about a wedding we had the past weekend, we had Duke's Parents Weekend and there was a little break in the wedding world. Therefore, we have decided to focus on something just as important: WINE!

One of our stations in the parlor for a wine event!
 The staff has narrowed down the (6) wines we will serve at our Wine & Cheese Tasting on November 13th from 3 - 5 PM. We wanted a subtle trend throughout the tasting so we settled on wines that will pair well with holiday meals. 

Want to attend our event? RSVP HERE!

We have come up with the following delicious list with a couple of tasting notes:

Mer Soleil Silver Unoaked Chardonnay:  Mineral driven nose with citrus shining through.
 
Fortediga Vermentino: Fresh, smooth mineral flavor, fine and persistent with pleasing aromas of pear and green apple notes.
Newton Claret: Spicy aromas of clove and cinnamon layered with dark fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry supported by juniper and sage.

2 Hands, Gnarly Dudes Shiraz: Rich berries, plums, lavender and dark chocolate coupled with spice, subtle earth, char / ash and anise.

Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara Country Pinot Noir: rich red fruit, earth, spice, floral notes, and citrus peel.

Chapoutier Banyuls Red (Aperitif Wine): powerful, balancing between black fruits and stewed fruits subtly brought by cocoa aromas.

Prodigal Farm will be bringing cheeses that pair well with each of the wines.  We can not wait to have some of their seasonal cheesecakes as well! 

YUM!
