We always make sure to catch Grape and Gourmet's big tasting event, Cheap and Cheery, on the second Saturday of the month. It's a great way to try beers and wines you might not normally buy.
Grape and Gourmet's monthly open house for beer and wine tasting. I love this event. It's homey, friendly and I always find something I like on the tables. In addition to the pouring they have a spread for cheese, crackers and dips. We dropped off some of Sloane's Smoked Gouda Dip from The Creative Wedge. I bumped into Barbara earlier that day at the Old Beach Farmer's Market, she asked if I would take one with me to share. I love that stuff, they're lucky it even made to a table.
Friday nights are wine nights for us; well sushi night too, but we can handle them both :)
The crowd started to grow at Yiannis and I was trying to keep my running around down, so it was off to Grape and Gourmet. Le Chef Alex was working the table here. Gabe is usually around the shop but he was out that night. Kevin and Deb, the owners, are always in shop but Kevin was laid up in bed. My take home from here was the Poizin Zinfandel. Fruit forward, nice finish.
