St Patrick’s Dinner at TVWS


11Mar2015_1d_TVWS-Irish-Tasting_Hat-Ranch_Vale-SignsJust a super night with Hat Ranch Winery and the awesome buffet that Chef Jake provided. Hat Ranch Winery recently bought Vale Wine Co and they still continue to sell wine under the Vale Wine Co label. Left-Click the photo to the left to see the labels of the wines offered. We had been to Hat Ranch about a year ago and were pleasantly surprised at the time. Tonight was a confirmation of those wine making abilities. They have some pretty darn good wines, a light bodied cabernet sauvignon and a light bodied merlot. Both of these wines were presented tonight and went absolutely well with the beef stew and the other buffet offerings. Enjoy the following photos of the evening and Left-Click any of them to see an enlarged image. Cheers!

My Mom used to make a casserole out of creamed peas and sausage patties. Oh how I loved that mixture! These peas were scrumptious, too.

An exciting evening with good friends, good wine and good food! Thanks to everyone who was there – about 30 of you – for making this Wine Buffet Dinner a good success! See you next month. Cheers!
