Vintners Holiday at Yosemite
Attended the Vintners Holiday last week at The Ahwanee hotel in Yosemite. It was to say the least fantastic. Two days of seminar tastings with Chappellet, Ceja, Far Niente and my favorite, Rockwall. Shauna Rosenblum put on a fantastic presentation while the guest sampled six of her wines, that would make Papa Kent very proud. If you haven't already, you really need to try her perfectly blended version of a Super Tuscan that garnered oooos and ahaaas from the guest. Also her Tannat was one of the best I've ever tasted. On the evening of the second night, there was a full-on candelight five course dinner served in the Ahwanee's historical dining room. About a three hour affair with nonstop pouring of the vintners great juices. If you ever have a chance, make this event a holiday tradition!
