Ah yes! Texas has wine! Some good. Some very good! Garry Scholz did a fantastic job in securing the wines and then presenting them. Gail Parker did a super job in paring the wines with our Texas style dinner! Thank you both for this awesome job! The crowd was good, about 40 people were there. Just look at this menu. You can Left-Click any of these photos to see them enlarged. Sorry for the missed one and the poor quality of others.
It was really a super night. Fine food and wine. Great friends! Telaya Wines, Carrie Sullivan presenting, were paired quite well with the buffet! The Chef and all of his Staff, did a superb job in presenting the buffet courses at the correct time and in the suggested order. Gail McClellan Parker does a super job in working the kitchen in suggesting the meal and paring the wines. Here is the menu for the evening and the wines. Please look at the winery link above and read their history. It’s interesting!
“Through Telaya–a blend of their two favorite places, the Tetons and la playa–they could establish a home base from which they could take others on a journey.”

Hope I made you drool and be hungry! ‘Cause you’ll have to join us next month for Wines of Texas, presented by Garry Scholz. Yah Hoo!
It’s been a while. Sorry for that but my computer finally came back to me. I could have used my phone,but …………. And I could have used my 7 year old lap top, but waaaaaaaaaaay to slow and awkward. But now we are back online. And what an opening! 58 people were with us to enjoy some superb, upper end wines and a Steam Ship Roast. Thanks Garry Scholz for a great presentation. If you Left-Click any of these photos, you should see them enlarged. Enjoy and enjoy our Buffet Wine Dinner. See you next month. Cheers!
A great start to the new year, 2017. Thank you Garry Scholz, the new President to TVWS, for an interesting and informative program. Six wines were presented plus one Cream Sherry, which has no cream in it! varietals presented were: Macabéo, Albariño, Garnacha, Monastrell, Rioja Rosso and Rioja Reserva. My favorites? Rioja Reserva, which spent at least 1 year in oak and 2 years in the bottle before release, and the Cream Sherry, which is Spain’s answer to Portugal’s Port.
The buffet was well-balanced to the wines and was interesting. Here is what was served on the buffet line. Left-Click any of these photos to see them enlarged. And before I forget, welcome to the Board, Doryne Wendel. It will be fun and exciting.
All-In-All a very good night. Food was good. Wine was good. Company was good. Even the streets were clear of ice and snow.
And at our table, Byron Minton and I were discussing a drink made from tequilla and St Germaine (Elderberry Flower liquor). Easy to make – drink it slow for it is creamy and smooth. 3 oz Jose Cuervo Tequila Gold, Blue Agave and 2 oz St Germaine. Mix in an 8oz glass. Add 1 ice-cube and stir to cool. Differently good. It’s sort of Spanish with the Tequila. Sort of.
And a great Luau it was, thanks to the Chef Revira and his Crew! A full room and attendance as we have every year at Christmas. It is a great time with some great food. Thanks go to Garry Scholz for taking most of the photos listed below – I “ran out” of film.
There were about 40 people there this year, maybe a few more. The weather outside was frightful – snow, black ice. It took us about 1 hour to travel the normal 20 minute drive time. But all ended well and the Luau was terrific! Every year there is also a Silent Auction of different things offered by the Board and others if they want. Look at these photos and you will see what a great time it was.
On December 14, 2016, the TVWS is presenting a Sparkling Wine Buffet Dinner – it’s going to be a Luau Roasted Pig – and a Silent Auction. Here is but one of many baskets that will be auctioned off. The face value on this one is $80.00. Robin and I are happy to donate this. See you there.
All of the TVWS Wine Dinner Buffets are ticketed. In other words, you must purchase tickets to attend. The tickets will be made available online and on this page each month.
Online-Purchase – $25/person
At The Door – $35/per person
