Based on the comments received from many of the 43 attendees at the Society’s April 13 “GMS” blends event, they enjoyed the event and the wines. While there seemed to be no clear favorite wine, the favorite food item was
Dominique Vetrano’s duck terrine. On the flip side, we were disappointed in the smoked ahi; but, the cheeses, especially the Petit Basque, were favorably mentioned on several comment cards.
Coke Roth added to the event by judging the wines – even giving them “medals” – and commenting on their individual characteristics. Fat Olives Restaurant provided a lovely atmosphere and elegant food presentation, and the whole event ran very smoothly and on time.
So overall, a successful event, and one that brought out members who not only volunteered to help plan and run future events, but also volunteers willing to be on the Wine Society Board of Directors. A win-win wine event!
