Tapas & Wine Tasting
05/14/2015

Tapas & Wine Tasting 

(Thursday, May 14th) Reservations Required

 

 

Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine. They may be cold such as mixed olives and cheese or hot such as croquettes or meatballs. In select bars in Spain, tapas have evolved into an entire, and sometimes sophisticated, cuisine. The serving of tapas is designed to encourage conversation, because people are not so focused upon eating an entire meal that is set before them.  Also, in some countries it is customary for diners to stand and move about while eating tapas.

 

Tapas Menu:

-Cold plate tapas: house made pickled vegetables with fresh radishes & marinated olives

-Charcurterie board: Spanish Chorizo, Cured Jamon, Manchego Cheese with dried fruits

-Shrimp and Potato Croquettes stuffed with Chopped Olives

-Deviled Eggs filled with Smoky Pimento Cheese

-Grilled Flat Bread Bites topped with Wild Mushrooms, Fresh Herbs, & Truffle Oil

-Dessert will be a combination of Fresh & Dried Fruits, Soft cheeses & Galletas

 

Wines:

-Prosecco (Villa Sandi)

-Petit Fume

-Gewürztraminer (Pierre Sparr – Alsace)

-Ch D’ Aqueria Tavel Rosé

-Siduri Pinot Noir

Kiepersol Port

Another Chloe Wine Tasting
04/30/2015

Due to the great response we lad last week for our Chloe Wine Tastings, we will offer it again this Thursday, April 30th! 

Again there will be no charge for the tasting; of course we hope you will enjoy the wines enough to make a purchase. 

To avoid the crush at we experienced last time, we will structure it a little differently. We are dividing it into 3 sessions, 30 minutes each. The sessions will be offered at 6:30pm, 7:15pm, and 8pm. If you missed the first one or if you want to repeat, hope to see you there. Also, we are limiting each session to 8-10 people, first come first serve basis.

The wines offered will be Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir & an excellent Red Blend! 

Live Music will be provided by the Tuxedo Cats!

 

... Mark Wagstaff, Ed.
