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!


  1. Water is healthy, wine is great! Glad you had a fun time. Your stew would have been my choice, too. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. ha ha I love wine and water too. what a very fun event to belong to-wine tasting and foods from a chef. good luck with your art show coming up I enjoyed all the photos Happy T Hugs Kathy

  3. The wine tasting sounds like fun. I'd have to try both the potato soup and the lamb stew. Both sound perfect for chilly weather. Hope we get to see your entry for the art show. Happy T Day

  4. It looks like you had a wonderful time at the winery ๐Ÿ˜. It must have been fun to taste the wine and the food looks yummy too! Wishing you a happy T Day! J ๐Ÿ˜Š x

  5. Sounds like a wonderful time! I would love to try one of these type of events where they pair foods with the wines. Wine and water- both great choices in my book:) All the best with your craft festival. happy T day!

  6. I LOVE potato soup, so that would be my soup of choice. I would probably go back for seconds, too. I'll have water and coffee, and you can have my share of the wine (grin).

    Have fun at your art fair. I hope your pieces sell. Please show us your booth and your art, too.

    Thanks for joining us on Tuesday this week (tee hee) and sharing your trip to the winery Pick Up Party for T this Tuesday.

  7. It must have been a super day at the Winery and tasting the wines recommended to match the food.
    They were good photos you shared as well.
    Happy T day wishes.
    Yvonne xx

  8. The wine club sounds like a fun treat, to go there in person for the food pairings and tastings :) Nice! I trust you'll have a good experience at the art show :) Happy T Tuesday

  9. I didn't know wineries did wine clubs but what a good idea and a way to have lots of fun. It sure looks like you did Krisha. Hope it was a happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  10. i haven´t been at a winery for long time... wonderful to taste it together with food! happy t-day (well, belated) and rest of the week:)

  11. What a lovely day at the winery! It sounds a very good idea to pair the wine with food and then actually serve that food to your customers. I bet it inspires you to do the same when you're home. Did you choose different wines to take home or a batch of all the same?
    I also love potatoe soup (I make a mean leek and potato soup) but if lamb stew is the alternative, I would go for the lamb stew, because I love that even more.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely day,
    Happy (belated) T-Day,

  12. Even Jesus turned water into wine for a special event, so why not?!...lol
    Super to be in a wine-club!
    Have fun at the art show Krisha!
    Our Liyongo is a Rhodesian Ridgeback , as he is a livernose he looks very similar to a Visla, as he was young he loved to play with two Viszlas - they a similiar in character but Ridgebacks are a bit taller and have much more weight than Vizlas. 88 lbs is his weight.
    Happy T-Day!
    Hugs, Susi

  13. Happy belated tea day, Krisha. I don't drink wine but it certainly sounds like a fun event. Food and tastings. Yum! Both the potato soup and the lamb stew sound delicious to me. Glad that you enjoyed yourself.


  14. This sounds like a great event! I would love the potato soup I'm sure!! Belated Happy T Day! Chrisx

  15. I always forget to take the photos I really wanted to take! Good luck with the show. Happy T Day!

  16. Your wine club sounds really fun, Krisha. Not to mention "delicious." Hubby and I would really enjoy that. We've done wine tastings on vacation, but there were no gourmet food pairings. To me, that's the best way to judge a wine - when paired with a wonderful dish.

    Sorry I'm so late commenting on your T-day post. I made early rounds and forgot to check back for new arrivals. Oops.

    Belated Happy T-day! Eileen xx
