Kunde Estate Winery - Interactive Tasting Experience

If you are one of my regular readers you will notice that I did not hit my mark for posting in January.  I had the best of intentions but happily we got really busy!  One of the exciting things was something new at Kunde Estate Winery.

We cater at Kunde in Kenwood frequently (weddings, tasting tours...); they are great people and are wonderful to work with.  I got a call the first week of Janurary that they were looking at bringing in a new style of tasting experience to their tasting room.  They asked me to create five hors d'ouevres that would pair with their wines.  The idea being that you sit down with a sommelier and experience how to taste wine and recoginize the flavors and scents.  Sandrew (from the winery) and I came up with nine different items to pair with wines and then paired it down to the final five.

They are offering this on the weekend by reservation.  I hope you will come out and give it try; I think it is a wonderful idea!
