Ah, Wine Club.
I have to admit I love the people and the food possibly even more than the wine.
This past weekend was no exception.
What a great evening!
Vinita and Greg hosted the Wine Club and we sampled Chiantis and delicious Italian food.
As always, my photos don't do the wonderful food justice.
I absolutely loved the dishes Vinita and Greg shared.
I could live on this olive bread.
Toasted baguettes were served with mildly sweetened ricotta (not shown) and Nutella (typical in Italy). And soooo yummy.
The Chiantis were actually really good.
I was sure they were all going to be heavy and very dry and I was surprised at the variety in the 6 wines we sampled.
Vinita shared some facts about Chiantis with us.
They sampled several while they were in Italy .
Chianti Classico Reserva are apparently the best with Chianti Classico also highly considered.
Chiantis come from a region in Tuscany.
