Virginia Wine Tours -- The Wine Connection: A Spur and a Flat-Iron


We recently came across this great post at the Vine Spot - Check it out!

 

Hello Friends,Depending on how old you are, you may remember classic television game shows like The Dating Game and The Love Connection. These shows sought to connect compatible people and entertain those of us who watched. Here at My Vine Spot, I’m marrying food and wine on the blog show -- The Wine Connection. Generally speaking, food and wine should complement one another; bringing out each other’s best traits to create a pleasant dining experience. Food and wine can also be a not-so-pleasant experience, producing off flavors and bringing out the worst in both food and wine. Last week I participated in a Murrietas Well, BBQ-themed, virtual tasting with Fifth Generation Winemaker, Karl Wente, and special guest, Executive Chef Matt Greco. Murrietas Well, not too far from Wente Vineyards, is a historic winery founded in 1883 by Louis Mel in Livermore, California. The property was purchased by the Wente family from the original owner and eventually resurrected in 1990 by Phillip Wente. Today, Murrietas Well specializes in small-lot wines and estate blends made from Livermore Valley fruit.
