Better with Age

26 Jul

Summer turned 30 this year (don’t worry you don’t look a day over 24!).  We had originally talked about going to Napa for some serious wine tasting, but as that did not get off the ground (work, kids, you know how that goes), we got together with friends and family for a little wine tasting courtesy of Vineagogo

Summer’s BFF, Shaheen, was generous enough to host the party at her home.  She is a fabulous cook and whipped up some bites for the wine tasting portion of the day as well as a full on meal for afterwards!

Vineagogo supplied the wine and gorgeous glasses and we supplied the fabulous company!

We got to taste several wines and even got schooled on which wines come from where and what makes up the regional differences. Once the seriously interesting discussion about the wine was over we ate, we drank, and we were very merry!

Since all of the wines we tasted were French in origin, I brought along some French desserts from Opera here in San Diego. To display these French macarons I wrapped a styrofoam cone in decorative paper. Toothpicks held each cookie in place. Make sure to buy more than you think you’ll need. It took 4 dozen to fill the smaller cone I made!

Have you ever brought the winery home and hosted a wine tasting in your home?
