Weekend fun

We hosted a gathering at our house this weekend in honor of a family engagement. What a great time! We met a lot of fantastic new people that we look forward to spending time with in the future. We had gorgeous weather, lots of terrific food and best of all; we had such help from everyone. Folks manning the grill, cooking the clams, cleaning up, helping in the kitchen. It all just ensured a smooth event. Just need to take a few minutes and tell you about the homemade sangria that the father of the bride to be made. A huge vat of red sangria, it had to be 7 or 8 gallons of liquid… well, let me tell you it had to be one of the best sangria’s I have had in a long time. Restaurant quality and then some.
It was a huge hit and only about 2 gallons were left. Of course, we had the usual red wine, white wine, beer, and mixed drinks, not to mention the Jimmy Buffet Margarita station, but we also got a special treat from one of the guests…home made red wine. Now, can I tell you I have not really been a fan of homemade wines in the past, but this one was different. An uncle of the bride to be has been making homemade wine for many years and I can tell you he has perfected his process. The wine was made from a blend of Cabernet and Zinfandel grapes. Deep ruby red in color with a long smooth silky finish and a hint of oak. If you want my opinion this wine would definitely compete with some of the big boys. Well the uncle will be making more wine late in September so I asked…OK maybe begged him to give me a call so I could watch and maybe help out. What a great party it was and the home made wine was an unexpected treat.
