Wine Club - Champagnes

Last month we kicked off a Wine Club with 9 other couples.  It was so much fun and we're so glad the rest of the group wanted to keep the tradition alive.  This month Jeff and Robin hosted the group and the theme they chose was champagnes!

Because our hosts own a restaurant (how nice!) they decided to have our Wine Club attend their Sunday Brunch.  The food was delicious:  fruit, salads, egg dishes, crepes, omelets, sweets, frittatas, and beignets.  Just wonderful!


We ate in the bar and then Robin and Jeff served one champagne at a time.  Again we went with a double blind tasting.  The bottles were in a bag so no one could see the brand and we did not show the bottles to everyone before starting the tasting. 

Mmm...beignets 

Our table especially enjoyed the blueberry sauce for the beignets - another table was hogging the chocolate sauce :)


And the winners, in order.  Because really, they were all winners. 

Our group's #1 choice was the Prosecco.  #2 and #3 were by G. H. Mumm. 

#4-#8 can be seen here, in order of our preferences. 

Mike and Mary were the big winners, receiving the Little Black Book of Wines from the hosts.
A wonderful brunch!
