Thanks Everyone!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Australian Wine Tasting Dinner last Saturday evening!

Despite it being a sold out event, I think everything went pretty smoothly.

As far as I could tell, everyone was having a great time all evening!

We got some really great complements on the food, which is always nice, and greatly appreciated!

Even though the dry rub on the grilled lamb skewers was just smokin’ hot – they were a big hit.

And it seemed everyone enjoyed the various indigenous Australian herbs that I used to prepare the different dishes with. Certainly tastes that are very uncommon over here!

Hard to say if there was a favorite dish, as most of the dishes got lots of great compliments.

On the wine side, there were three clear winners:

First, the pairing of wine to food. Seemed to have gone over very well!

Then the first Chard we served – the Pillar Box White – which was a combo of Chard, SB and Verdelho grapes was very well received.

Finally, on the shiraz side of things, the Parson’s Flat Shiraz / Cabernet Sauvignon was a hit. I think the Cab added some depth and body to the shiraz grape, with a very positive result.

So I’m glad everyone that came enjoyed the event and had a great time with us at Sol Del Sur!

The next wine tasting dinner will be in about a month – likely not Halloween weekend, maybe a week later – until then, be sure to stop Sol Del Sur by any evening for some great food and wine!
