4/18 Anniversary Celebration & Chateau Ste Michelle Twitter Tasting

Tonight I’m celebrating my wedding anniversary AND participating in the TGTaste on Wednesday, April 18 at 5 pm PST  with Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Winemaker, Wendy Stuckey and head Thirsty Girl, Leslie Sbrocco.
The wines we’ll be tasting are:

I’m also bringing a bottle of their 2005 Luxxe sparkling wine for our anniversary celebration!

Since these rieslings work really well with food, I debated what to make for our dinner and to taste with food since I think that wine is a beverage that shines with food and is a natural part of a meal. I perused John Sarich’s Chef in the Vineyard. John is the culinary director at Chateau Ste Michelle; he started in the wine and food business there in 1976, the year the winery first opened its doors.

But in the end, we decided to go with a classic and easy pair–riesling and Chinese food! Instead of take-out, we made arrangements with Gary at Golden China Restaurant located on the Seaward exit in Ventura off the 101 to conduct our twitter tasting there–and stay for dinner and an anniversary celebration with lots of friends: my husband and I were married 9 years ago today!
