Wine and dine on Presidential favorite foods!
An Anti-Valentines Day Extravaganza!
On selected Fridays throughout the summer months, featuring yummy food made by our favorite local caterers, – pizza! – tacos! – live music by our favorite local artists, and yummy Twisted Oak wines by the glass or bottle.
Nick, the assistant winemaker, has been after me to move out some of the dusty old vintages cluttering up our library cellar, so I think it’s about time for The Return of the Mystery Box!
I’m just going to flat out admit that the whole Missive thing got away from me in May – so much to do to get concerts and pizza nights going – and the prognosis for June is still running flat out. What’s going on, you might ask? Well, read on Montague!
We’ve put together what we think you’ll agree is the strongest lineup yet for the 2017 concert season! There are two returning crowd favorites from previous seasons, two multiple Grammy Award winners, two who have been nominated for Grammys multiple times, and one whose latest album is currently #2 on the Billboard bluegrass charts!
The Great Chocolate Question!…didn’t produce a lot of responses, but the few that did respond were pretty passionate about it. Ward K., for example, reaches his “happy place” with a sip of a medium tannic red, followed by a nibble of 62% dark chocolate, a few dry roasted peanuts, and repeat. Dana M.’s favorite is a peanut butter cup chased by a great Sauternes (yike!), while Trudy H. from away up north keeps toasty with a flourless chocolate cake and Pig Stai. (Now we’re talkin’!)
If you recall from last month’s Twisted Missive #1, we asked you to name two foods and a wine, where any two of those items taste good together, but when all three are combined, taste terrible. You folks came up with some great answers!
Yes, that’s right! A moment’s indiscretion in providing your email address some time in the distant past now results in this little missive hitting your email box! We hope you will give it a chance – read on!
Congratulations to Mary Jane & Greg who came closest to guessing the blend for the next vintage of Parcel 17 – correct answer was 40% Mourvedre, 20% Carignane, 40% Graciano.
