Wine Tasting

This weekend I attended a wine sampling menu at Bistro Sophia in Greensboro with the Greensboro Corks Crew. It was fantastic!  Check out our menu:

  • Nardi Giordano Prosecco “Spago” Frizzante DOC Prosecco di Treviso, Veneto, Italy/NV paired with: Truffled Pommes
  • Torrent Bay Sauvignon Blanc Nelson, New Zealand/2008 and Wildhurst Chardonnay Lake County, California/2008 paired with Smoked Salmon & Cucumber Sandwiches
  • Pere Anselme dry rosé of Grenache Côtes-du-Rhône, Southern Rhône, France/2008 paired with Duck Salad served on Bibb lettuce 
  • Pellegrini Family Vineyards Carignan Redwood Valley, California/2007 paired with Sliced Beef Tenderloin with Roasted Mushroom Salad 
  • Eredi Lodali Dolce Frizzante DOCG Moscato d’ Asti, Piedmont, Italy/2009 paired with Miniature Crème Brûlée

 I could have easily bought a bottle of the Prosecco and stayed out on the patio talking for hours; however, I switched to coffee and enjoyed the company of new friends for a while.  I can't wait for their next event!
