Wine Dinner, Book Club & Tastings
Have you joined the Platinum Wine Club yet?
This First Friday we are holding a "benefit" wine tasting featuring the One Hope Wines. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of all of their wines go to different causes. We will pour their Brut for $14.59 (which benefits Why Hunger). Their Chardonnay $14.59 (which benefits Breast Cancer Research). Their Pinot Noir $17.99 (which benefits the ASPCA). Their Merlot $14.59 (which benefits The End Fund). In keeping with their cause, we will be donating 10% of the sales from the tasting to the local rescue group Dakota's Dream. So your purchase of the wines will do twice the good. This is Napa Valley wine & they are lovely! The Chardonnay, Merlot & Pinot Noir are produced in collaboration with Rob Mondavi Jr., so they have quite the pedigree, too. These wines have been responsible for over 3 million in donations to date. I hope to see you on the 7th from 6p-9p.Crissy Knotts, the fearless leader of The Other Side Of The Tracks, will be here selling her art!

A complete menu will be announced soon! We will be using Riedel Glassware for the evening. You'll have 6 courses all for $72.00 (not including tax & gratuity). A free shuttle from Old Town to the Hilton Garden is available first come, first serve & you'll be brought back to Old Town at the end of the night, no later than 8:45pm. All wines will be available for purchase, at special pricing, at the end of the evening! The Hilton Garden is located at 120 Wingate Drive. I am really excited about this, I hope you'll join us. Reservations must be made by the 24th. We just announced this yesterday and have already taken a half a dozen, so don't delay. 
 Murphys has teamed up with the Winchester Book Gallery for a Wine & Book Club.The first rule of Book Club is that  you have to buy the book at the Winchester Book Gallery. This isn't the Costco/Amazon book club! Of course, if you already have it, that's fine too. Our first meeting is on Oct. 3rd at 6pm at The Book Gallery's new location 7 North Loudoun St. Our first book is Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. The cost is $10.00 to cover the cost of the wines (cash or card) & you'll pay the night we meet. In doing some research into Anthony, I found that his last show was filmed in Alsace, so we will feature a Cremant d'Alsace (a sparkler) as an opener and a red Bordeaux, too. His family hails from Bordeaux and he spent time there growing up. We will only be meeting 4 times a year. The other tentative dates are Jan 9th 2019, April 3rd 2019 & July 10th 2019. We will pick our next book, my personal vote is for Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett's Good Omens. I would squeeeee with delight if it was picked, but this club is a democracy, so we'll vote, or draw suggestions out of a hat! Buy Kitchen Confidential if you don't already have it & consider joining us on Oct. 3rd. 
One of my absolute favorite times of the year!

My good friend Chef Dan Kalber of Village Square & Water Street Kitchen did our review this month: The 2017 Chateau d'Aqueria is a well balanced Tavel wine. This blended rose wine has dark berry & spring cherry forward flavors across the palate that are complimented by minerality throughout with grains of paradise on the finish. Pairs well with grilled salmon with chimichurri sauce or pulled pork sandwiches. The best pairing in my opinion, is a good movie and a few wine glasses! Charlie says, "It's Yummy"
Our final tasting of the month will be on the 29th with Bravo Wine Cellars. It will be from 2p-5p and as a special treat, we'll have a Stella and Dot jewelry rep here!
