Using 2 flights of wine, members got to experience and compare DOC and DOCG Proseccos. These were accompanied by stuffed mushrooms, crostini, 3 types of flatbread, prosciutto-wrapped melon and arugula salad, and of course, discussions and a lot of socializing!
Fat Olives' Chef Chris prepared the flatbreads on site. They were terrific! And for dessert – WOW! Marie Pennella provided her homemade biscotti. What a treat!
The group’s favorite wine? By consensus – the La Marca Extra Dry Prosecco, a DOC wine, followed by the only vintage Prosecco, the 2012 Bisol Crede Valdobbiadene. Members were presented with a surprise mystery wine and then asked at the end of the event if they could guess which one it was. I believe everyone was equally surprised to learn it was a Costco Kirkland-brand DOCG.
Comments were very complimentary regarding the casual atmosphere and member interaction. Tony and his event co-chairman, Ted Davis, put together a great event. Special thanks to Fat Olives owner, JD Nolan, and Chef Chris for the great flatbread and other treats, and to Marie for the great biscotti.
