While the Mickey Arnett Duo provided the musical backdrop, Chef Marty and his able team began wowing the guests with his garlic pineapple ginger glazed tropical shrimp skewers paired with the 2012 Vienza Pinot Grigio from Europa Village.
Brian called it “superb, unbeatable at the price.” Kim called it smokey, leggy and oaky. I liked the expressive nose and picked up cherries and berries.
A blend of Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Sauvignon Blanc and Gros Manseng, it features a citrus nose, lemon/lime with a hint of kiwi. It’s a perfect summer wine and at $8 it won’t hurt your budget.
Most people are passionate about beets, Robert told us. They either love them or hate them. I must confess I fall into the latter group.
Ken called it “very fresh and nicely fruity, a nice go-to summer wine.” Sue said it was fresh and crisp and a great value at $12. Tony said “like it lots!”
Brian said “I feel it must be good for you. Looks good, tastes good and by golly it does you good.” Runar loved the “dreamy, eye-closing nose.”
“The farmers come in the back door with dirt still on their hands.” It just doesn’t get any fresher. The culinary team takes field trips to farms, not just locally, but around the country.
