The May EVOE detailed the menu and wine pairing. The food was great and the wines were superb. Nancy Beitel, event co-chairman, introduced the guest speaker, Larry Oates, owner and winemaker of Sleeping Dog Wines. He gave a brief synopsis of each wine and how it came into being. He also had some very interesting stories to accompany each wine and was very responsive to questions from the group.
Thanks to Bonefish Grill for hosting the event, and a special thanks to Tyson Jones, the manager, and his staff for being so accommodating. A very special thanks also to Larry Oates for sharing his wine and stories, including sharing how Sleeping Dog Wines evolved. In all, I believe this year’s annual meeting was a great success.
