A Perfect Start to a Perfect Evening #ItalianFWT

Start your next gathering with a Cheese and Wine platter.  I am featuring Italian Wines with my cheeseboard today.  I opened 3 of these bottles to serve as guests arrived and saved the Cecchi Riserva to pour with my main course.

Paganens (Algonquin Wild Nut Soup) #SundayFundayBloggers

November is National American Indian Heritage Month.  I'm sure this month was chosen as it was when Europeans first emigrated to the New World and were met by friendly Indigenous Americans who celebrated their arrival with a feast.  We now acknowledge that arrival and feast each year in Thanksgiving.


The Sunday Funday Bloggers are celebrating American Indians today.........

East meets West~~Pork Fried Rice and a North Carolina Wine #CabFrancDay #sponsored

I was gifted a bottle of Jones von Drehle Cabernet Franc in celebration of Cab Franc Day that was founded by my friend Lori of Exploring the Wine Glass and Draceana Wines.   I received no monetary compensation for this post and all opinions and writings are strictly my own.

Bottle of Cab Franc

Most of you have probably had Cab Franc blended with other grapes in Bordeaux style wines.  Cab Franc Day was created to honor this varietal and to tell the world that Cab Franc is not just a blending grape but wonderful all on it's own.
