Plus we had an assortment of breads and chips. The one photo I did not get was the Hot Artichoke Dip. It was yummy!! It was really a great buffet. I liked it and others must have too, as there was not much left over. The wines that we had were from Spain, Italy, France and the United States. Seven sparkling wines were chosen by Toni Smith, Cheryl Gibson and Bridgette Gibson for our enjoyment. Thank you, ladies. Great job. See you at the January tasting. Cheers!
