Checked out the Mill Street tasting night at Salt tonight (thought I would throw in a beer night for the BF since he is constantly dragged out to wine events).
The night was capped off with their Coffee Porter paired with a chocolate terrine - amazing.
The one surprise was that they skimmed their tasting plates down to two cheeses and two meats rather than 3 & 2. With the new even matches we found that we did less mixing and matching… Which is the one thing we have loved doing at all their past events.
All in all, still a tasty night - capped off in time to see the Canucks win it in overtime!
Now would be a good time for visa to stop accepting my charges…
Stopped in at Tantalus to check out their rose and ended up leaving with some sparkling and riesling as well.
Cedar Creek just released their first Rose. Very crisp and dry. May regret only getting two bottles today…
Three vineyards into our wine weekend (Blasted Church, Le Vieux Pin, La Stella) and three and a half cases purchased.
Highlights: 2010 Vaila, 2010 Hatfield’s Fuse and 2010 Vivace.
Blind buy: 2008 OMG sparkling wine - can’t wait to chill it to give it a try!
Perfect day for some wine tasting in the Okanagan. The view at Blasted Church is almost as amazing as the last two bottles of the 2009 Riesling that we snagged off the shelf!
