August 27, 2016 with Shannon Griffin & Presqu'ile Wine

Our third Supper Club event of 2016 was this past Saturday and AGAIN, it was a rousing success! Chef Shannon Griffin created a lovely meal with her twin brother Sean assisting. We all had out favorites but mine was the Bucatini Pasta with sausage!

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!
