I must admit admonishment for not having kept up on my blogging, as I believe my last post was somewhere back in the Jurassic Age. When I saw a pterodactyl fly over the other day I got a clue. Actually, it was just a turkey buzzard, but imagination got the best of me.
To the point! We’re going to have our first summertime Salida open house next Saturday, July 30th. In keeping with our Iberian theme, we plan some delicious Spanish-influence morsels, including Canapes, Gazpachos, Smoked Pulled Pork, Grilled Chicken with Peach Chutney and a great Pasta Salad on the side.
Our 2008 Tempranillo and 2008 Fuego Sagrado (the malbec and tempranillo blend) are rapidly diminishing, so this will be the last winery event where they’ll be available. We’re going to discount both wines for our summer celebration.
Then, we’re featuring our wonderful (and first) Albarino, Spain’s most renowned white wine, and our blend, Tres Vinos, both priced at a very reasonable $17.00 a bottle with a minimum purchase of six, and you can mix and match as you would like in any combined quantity.
The Albarino is very rich and bold, standing up to a host of foods (even our Gazpachos!) and redolent of pineapple, bosc pear, green melon and braeburn apple. Tres Vinos is a surprisingly big wine this vintage and very versatile, pairing with almost anything off the grill. So it’s perfect for this time of year, yet certainly is an all-season wine.
It looks as though we’re going to have beautiful weather with temperatures in the low to mid-seventies, so it couldn’t be much better than that!
Give us a call at 360.446.8466 if you’d like to join us. It always helps to be able to plan so there’s plenty of food for everyone.
Like we used to say down in Louisiana, “Ya’ll Come!”
