With COVID vaccinations in our rear view I’m ready to ramp up and host another Old Vines Event.
Your bottle doesn’t have to be old but the vines the grapes came from do.
Where: Casa Tuite - Forestville
Date: Sat Aug 7th
Time: 2-3ish til the Stonekings wear out
Theme: Old Vines - Red/White
Sub-theme: Ridge Vineyards
Brian and Dava
Alan and Karen Rath

Mike and Dana Stoneking
Ed and Becky Steinway
Richard Foxall & Deb Levine +2
Marty and Linda Sparks
Bring your vaccination card.
We are 5 days out.
I plan on grilling some Flannery: Tri-Tip, Rib Eyes, Jorges, Hangers…
For the non-meat eaters we have a killer Salmon Burger w/Green Goddess Dressing recipe from John Ash
Bill’s Special Corn
Alan is bringing Salad
Shawnda is bringing sauces and home baked Sourdough
I’ll make Bruschetta from my garden veggies
I have plenty of stems but only 1 decanter (2 if Richard remembers to return my GoVinvo) Others are bringing decanters so we are covered if necessary.
WeatherCurrent forecast is for a game-time temp of 90°. Dress code is extremely casual, shorts and t-shirt. Bring layers just in case. I have a heater on the back deck and normally we don’t need it but you never know.
