Sunday, Sept 20- Special Harvest Event
Wine, Tapas, and Truffles

RESERVE SPACE NOW for Sunday, September 20 from 3-5pm for a special “Harvest Tasting,” featuring a lovely set of wines (see below) paired with delicious ’small bites’ (i.e. tapas) prepared by our friend and chef extraordinaire Mary Beth, followed by delectable hand-made chocolate truffles from Pat & Janice.

$28 per person, RESERVE NOW via email or phone 360.758.2959. It’s gonna be good!

Of course, the customary perspective is “what wine would go well with this food?” But sometimes it’s fun to look at it the other way around: “Here are some great wines; what foods and flavors would really make them shine?” …!!!

In either case, it is the dance between the food and the wine that engages us. Like the golfer’s elusive perfect shot, good wine and food pairings create a synergy that makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts, and when that happens it is quite magical. So we are always shooting for magic, and every once in a while we find it, and our palates sing, and Life is Good!

Probable menu for the event:

…brings to mind the famous palindrome: “Able was I ere I saw Elba”…looks like Napoleon didn’t have it all that bad in exile on this lovely island…
