Benley Dinner a Success... This Evening, a Tasting at Whole Foods Torrance!

They packed the house and everyone was happy that the dinner started at 8pm after the VP candidates' debate.

Everyone was in great sprits, the restaurant was loud in a warm and cheerful way, the wines showed beautifully, and exploded with the food.

There's nothing like German Riesling and Asian food, I don't know why, but I just cannot drink dry wines with this type of food, and that bit of RS (residual sugar for those of you who don't use the jargon) and some great balancing acidity just does the trick.

I'll save my dry wines for the European influenced meals!

Okay, this evening, I'm off to Whole Foods, where friend Yvonne, the buyer and I will be hosting a German wine tasting. Super fun! We'll have a bunch of Rieslings from dry to sweet (of course), and a Gewurztraminer too!

Glad to hear the dinner went well Nancy, makes some of that hard work worth it when people are really happy and the pairings make sense.

So how did the tasting with Yvonne over at Whole Foods go?

Really nice! Small turnout by Wine Country standards, but a nice group of people who enjoyed the wines. Gave a little spotlight to that section.
