2010/12/14 Thank you Dinner from Mats from Travieso Winery
π 2010-12-14 01:01 in Dining
Jennifer has been volunteering at Travieso Winery for over a year now, and along with other regular volunteers, they apparently helped sell a lot of wine and club subscriptions at open house events (apparently Jennifer is a good salesperson when she's selling good stuff ;).

Mats, one of the two Travieso co-founders, made a fantastic dinner for us (especially considering that all he had in the winery was a microwave and a portable propane burner).

Although, while the dinner was actually really good, it was only second to the fantastic wine selection, including a 1861 Madeira (!), a very nice 1970 Port and 1981 chateau d'Yquem Sauternes and a couple of Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon from his personal collection (not counting a nice flight of Travieso wines). It's not every day that you get to drink some of those.

A Big thank you Mats for sharing all this with us.
