Presqu'ile Wines came and lent us the very talented Matt for the evening to tell us all about grapes, terroir, and wine-making in Santa Maria. We started off with their Sparkling Blanc de Blancs followed by the Pinot Noir Rose, the Chardonnay and finishing off with the Pinot Noir. A delightful set of wines and many of our eat+drink-ers went home with a bottle or two under their arms.
Always fun and games at a Supper Club event. Someone has kidnapped Ed the Gnome! We haven't received a ransom letter yet but we're sure it will arrive soon. We need proof that he's alive!
