Just one more sip...

It’s been all wine tastings all the time around here – two in one week!



I know you don’t feel bad for me at all, as I'm over here sipping and slurping and nibbling on cheese and bread. One tasting at Artisanal involved ten wines and five cheeses - we learned about traditional and more innovative pairings of cheese and wine from none other than David Rosengarten, who's really quite funny and entertaining. The biggest surprise at the tasting was how much better all of the white wines tasted with cheese - the reds (other than one delicious rioja) pretty much overpowered all of them. I'm reserving my final judgment pending further study.

That must have been truly an educational class! I agree that most reds clobber a lot of cheeses over the head.

We discussed it and we do not feel sorry for you. At all.

Was that part of class or leisure? I've been dying to try Artisinal...now I have more incentive.
