Yesterday we had our Fall Wine Club Party & Open House at the Foursight winery and tasting room in Boonville. It was sprinkling, so we cleaned out the cellar, set up a bar and a table, and prepared to pour all our current releases, plus a preview of an upcoming Pinot Noir release and a 2010 Pinot Noir barrel sample.
We ended up with quite a few people throughout the day, including some friends and family who came up for the event or helped us organize and work it (thanks to Linda, Rose and the rest who made some absolutely delicious food and to Sara and everyone else who helped).
Even though the live band was late -- they somehow thought the event was today and not yesterday -- they helped round out the afternoon with music. We ate gourmet soups, tri-tip and polenta with black bean salsa, tiny chocolate cupcakes and raspberry cheesecake, pumpkin cheesecake, a giant round of St. George cheese, gouda, and a host of other appetizers. Overall, I think it was a big success.
Every fall we like to throw this party to thank our club members for their support. Our club members are invaluable and truly help sustain our business, and we want them to know we appreciate them.
Here are some photos of the day:
