V2WW was WOW

The pairing table was set. The wine bar was ready. Make-up mostly covered the dusting-accident bruise on my brow. And then the rain came. In buckets.




I fretted that the weather was going to ruin our planned good time. Wrong. The people here for the dessert and wine pairing were ready to party.

With the shades up in the dining room we could see the rain and hear the gusting wind, but it seemed a world away from the happy chatter and laughter of our guests and us.

It was fun to first taste each wine and then to taste it again with its selected dessert. David from Crane Creek Vineyards knows his stuff and his skill in pairing the desserts and wine was evident. The right wine with the right food is like a great date. They just "hit it off" and complimented each other so well.

 

Listening to our fellow tasters was interesting and insightful. We were all happily surprised at the different nuances produced in the wine and the food. All of our guests were delightful company and John and I thank them for being here for our first V2WW. Seems a good time was had by all (they told me so). We will definitely do this again.
