We were greeted warmly by staff member Julie, whose bright smile and hospitality made us feel welcome. The news that the winery was now open until 9:00 pm (Fridays only) has spread, and the turnout was larger than expected. All the staff was hands on, including owner Carlos in keeping up with the table service. We enjoyed the ambiance of the patio; sipping wine, chatting and watching the horses in the fields beyond.
We did a tasting of white and red wines before ordering pizzas, a ham and pineapple, as well as a margarita pizza with locally grown ingredients. Kim, your skill as a pizza maker is outstanding, they were delicious. We hope you will have them on the menu often. Barb and Ken chose the Merlot while Jane and I ordered the Reisling to accompany the pizzas
Winemaker Carlos found time to join us, bringing out his newly released fortified wine, Portance Merlot. I have a feeling that it is going to be on Barbara's Christmas wish list, she loved it!
The dessert of the evening was a delicious flour free chocolate cake Kim had prepared, it complimented the Portance Merlot perfectly.
