T Stands for Winery
Great balls of fire!! It's Tuesday again and time to link up with The T-Gang and Elizabeth our hostess
Since last week I was SOOO late and unprepared, I've tried to do a little better this week......I mean last week I posted on Wednesday and this week it's on Tuesday. LOL!
I have shown photos of this winery many times, because we are wine club members. It was time for us to go over and pick up our spring wines. We don't have it shipped because we enjoy what they call a "Pick up Party" The winery is closed to the public and only wine club members are allowed in. On these events they have a chief come and prepare food for a light lunch to pare with the wines. This time he had prepared a loaded baked potato soup and a lamb stew. I'm not a big potato soup person, so I chose the lamb stew, and was not disappointed.
I forgot to take the photo before I started. It had rained all the way over to the winery, and the sun came out just as we got there. It was still chilly, so that lamb stew was perfect.......right down the drippings I was soaking my bread in.....LOL!
We were sitting outside on the patio eating and also enjoying some live music.
This lady was one of the tasting servers, now I can't remember her name, but she was so nice. Each wine has a station with a display binder, like she is holding, the left side describes the wine and the right side describes what food it is being pared with. So, at each station you get a 2 oz tasting of wine, and a bite size food tasting to pare with it..........there are usually 6 stations. All the food tastings are prepared by a on site chief, and are usually quite delicious........and yes you can go back around and do it more than once.
Keeping it short, again (lucky you) this week. I have to get my art ready for the Shafter Colour Festival this weekend. It's time for the annual art show that I have participated in the last three years.
And YES I do drink water, not just wine LOL!
