Friday night is wine tasting night for me. I'll usually hit the two local shops in the area to try out something new. I got a text from Yianni earlier saying I needed to be at the shop that night, they had a special treat.
Brandon Allen and Bo Silliman of SLO Down Wines who are on their Caddy Tour, were stopping by a couple spots in Virginia Beach including Yiannis Wine Shop. Gregg Zimpel of Z Wine Guy distributes SLO Down Wines in the area was in the shop with the guys. They had their Broken Dreams Chardonnay and Sexual Chocolate red blend available at the table.
Shelby and I met our friends Sarah and Scott at the shop and the first thing I notice when I parked was a huge Cadillac with paint and writing all over it. I didn't know about the Caddy Tour till I got inside Yiannis but I figured this had to part of the surprise that night.
Bo and Brandon hung around for a while to sign bottles, pour and talk about the wines and their operation. They had one more stop in town at Thirty 7 North and then they were driving up to DC. We took home a signed bottle of the Sexual Chocolate, we stored it at home and will definitely enjoy it in the future.
