Cooking with Wine

A good-looking group of wine chefs!

Dessert station:
Joe's Cool Red spiked strawberries and cream pie!
What a great night we had on Tuesday! Chef Bonnie planned an awesome menu and I have to say we were a bit skeptical that everything could be prepared in our modest catering kitchen and event room...Fortunately she proved us wrong and brought in lots of supplies and ingredients to set up each station and prepare a gourmet meal. From poached salmon to rose marinated chicken breasts to strawberries and cream pie, the whole evening was a blast, as you can tell from the pictures. We're holding a second Cooking with Wine class on April 12th, so sign up here by April 11th to join in!

Richard and Taylor have been filtering wines all week to get them ready for bottling. Claudia and I tasted the 2010 Lazy Day White this morning and it is delicious! Next week most of us will be in Richmond for the Wineries Unlimited trade show and conference- learning and talking about all things wine, and we're bottling most of our 2010 wines on April 8th and 9th.

We also had a visit from Stan Shedaker, of Adrenaline High. He's going to offer bike-kayak-wine tours from Layton's Chance this summer. He brought some students by from Salisbury University to do a test ride and tasting!

The best part of working in a winery?
Tasting wines!
I can't believe March is almost over and we're going full speed into spring. Check back for more news about the View of the Vineyard event on April 16th and our Easter Egg Hunt on April 23rd. And don't forget to mark your calendars for our 1 Year Anniversary Celebration with Randy Lee Ashcraft on May 28th!
