The most appreciated wine of the day seemed to be the Santa Christina Sangeovese,
Always a good choice for any of your pasta dishes, or for just plain sipping!
And, don't forget, the great value wines from Concha y Toro, best suited for steaks,
chops, and stews!
Hope you all can make it the next time!
We had a wonderful time Sunday, September the 14th, at the Blackstock Vineyards, where we had a tour and tasting conducted by David Harris, owner and winemaker. We had the opportunity to sample ten different wines, including some of the winery's very best reserve wines. We had a good turnout with great weather, and if you could not attend, I encourage you to visit the winery when you can.
