What a Great Night!

An invitation to a wine tasting is always an opportunity for a good time!  This time, the tasting is being hosted by a culinary student from PPCC-- Supansa Banker.  
On top of it all, this was the first gathering at her new home!

This event turned out to be much more than a wine tasting...
everything was paired with Supansa's amazing food.  

These were some of the highlights:     

  Thai spice BBQ shrimp 

This bite sized wonder featured Soft Brie cheese, pear and cranberry chutney, caramelized pear onion, and fresh fig on toast. 

These were the wines of the evening

 Roasted Bone Marrow with mache, fennel, and grapefruit salad

Chef Mark threw this delectable Elk creation together with 
caramelized onions, black berries and goat cheese

Chocolate Tart                                                  Eclairs

Simply a wonderful night.  
You should have been there!

Adventures in Colorado Wine Country

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary and unable to travel to Spain, we opted to look into our own 'backyard' and discover the wineries of Colorado.  Our first winery stop brought us to Colterris. 
Owners Theresa and Scott High took us on a vineyard tour that was amazing.  We looked at the grapes...

the soil...
and enjoyed their company.
Scott even showed us a few of his collection of 5,000 wine openers.
The Highs also are the proprietors of High Country Orchards.  Their Palisade Peaches make up 70% of their crop with the other 30% being the vines for their wines.
We even had the privilege of enjoying wine with the Highs.  This is their Cabernet Sauvignon that rivals cabernets from California.
We look forward to sharing more of our adventure with you in the days to come.
