Grapes & Grub? Grande e Gratificante!!!

It only took multiple “pandemic postponements.” But, on Sunday, June 13, 2021, twenty-one Cenacolisti and friends made the short drive to Santa Rosa for our first person-to-person Club gathering in more than a year.

It was a picture-perfect day with weather to match at the Martin Ray Vineyards and Winery. We started with an informative tour learning about the history of the Martin Ray operation and the story of its current production including its newest endeavors into cement egg fermentation for one of their Chardonnays and the production of sparkling Rosé of Pinot Noir. Of course, we then got down to the important work of tasting a flight of six wines (plus a couple of special pours). And, following all that “very hard work,” we sat down on the patio to enjoy a light lunch and, perhaps most importantly, to have the personal interactions just not possible with Zoom.

Che giornata meravigliosa con buoni amici!
(What a wonderful day with good friends!)
