TVWS Wine Dinner with Split Rail and Terra Nativa Wineries


10Feb2013_2_Indian-Creek-Valentines_Robin_Restroom-CarvingOn April 8, 2015, the Treasure Valley Wine Society held its monthly wine dinner with two Idaho wineries, Split Rail Winery and Terra Nativa Vineyards. A great and well attended buffet dinner. The wines that were offered, three from each of the wineries with the winemakers presenting their wines, were varied. From full bodied to light and easily drinkable. My favorite of the night was a 2011 Split Rail Winery Petit Verdot. Anytime you can find and enjoy a Petit Verdot that has not been blended with something else, is a real treat. (That’s my bias!)
Chef Jake, a Swiss trained Chef, did a fantastic job again. The paring with the wines was just perfect. The tasting leaders, Kathy Johnson who picked the wines and Bridgette Gibson who worked with Chef Jake and the food parings, did a good job. Enjoy these photos of the evening and please join us for one of our buffet wine dinners. Cheers!

Kelsey Iverson home "on leave" from her Cruise Director job on a private yacht.  She is in Robin and mine extended family  - it's a long story. Great to see you again, Kelsey. You know where we live.
