I had a friend of mine from the Traveling Vinyard come over and throw a wine tasting!
The line up:
Light Bodied White Wines –
Medium Bodied White Wines –
Crab Dip (friends brought this for us)
Grilled Shrimp (BBQ recipie from cooking light)
Medium bodied Red Wines –
Hummus (friends brought this for us)
Full Flavored Red Wines –
Bittersweet Chocolate (Cost Plus – expresso flavored and one that was mango and chili pepper)
The Desert – Moscato D’Asti – 2005
We had a total of 14 people there to eat and drink! We spread out over the dining room and the living room. Hubby and I manned the kitchen! Rolling out the different food settings while they explained everything and poured the wine! We enjoyed all the wines that were tasted! The Chardonnay was a nice flavor and not the normal biting taste you usually get.
We ended with the Port from ClearCreek Cellars in Evergreen (we provided that!). Most people seemed to like that as well!
