Tavosa Wine Tasting

Another mini-break this weekend – this time to Oakland and Sonoma for a friends wedding and a wine tasting/dinner! I’m getting so spoiled with all these mini-vacations! 


Last fall Michael and I bought at an auction supporting my alum, Gonzaga University, a dinner and wine pairing in Sonoma at a friends winery called Tavosa. I’ve never been wine tasting and barely know anything about wine, so it was fun to see and learn the process. 


And the dinner – wow! A five-course meal, cooked by a gourmet chef, and each course paired with a special wine: 
1. Watermelon and Tomato Gazpacho with a Pinot Gris
2. Arugula and Goat cheese Salad with a Chardonnay
3. Cornish Game Hen and Ratatouille with a Cabernet
4. Steak and Roasted Potatoes with a Grenache
5. Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice-Cream and a Rose´  
It was amazing!


Now I’m back in Seattle, exhausted, and on a diet!
