Super good “blind” wine tasting and Italian Buffet!

Treasure Valley Food and Wine Blog

28Nov2015_2a_Snake-River-AVA-Visit_Williamson_SignPatrick Williamson, of Williamson Orchards and Vineyard, did a super good job in presenting one of the few “blind” tastings the TVWS has had last night. These wines were all from the Snake River AVA and all were Cabernet Sauvignon, although some were blended. Sorry to say, some of us were stumped! Oh well, more to learn – the process never ends. But then, that’s the fun of this organization and these programs.
The food, prepared by Swiss trained Chef Jake, was an Italian theme that was well pared with the wines. And the vanilla ice cream at the end, topped with a port-like dessert wine was super.

Good idea using the white board. You can see some of the comments and where the wines were from. Good idea using the white board. You can see some of the comments and where the wines were from.
