At station one, we started off with a white wine, Manifesto Sauvignon Blanc. It was light and sweet. The first food, a vegan summer slaw, I skipped.
Station two was a very yummy white, Kinkead Ridge Viognier. It's from a winery in Ripley, Ohio. The food, a carmelized peach tart with cider vinegar gastrique, was good (although I picked off the peach - not sure it still counts).
Station three was BV Napa Valley Chardonnay. It was very complex for a white and had an oaky after-taste (in a good way)
Station four was Galasso Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. It was a nice Italian red. The food, Chicken Scaloppini with Spaghetti Squash & Brown Butter, was quite good too.
Finally, the cheese station: Pecorino Toscano DOP, Delice de France Camembert, and Point Reves Original Blue. All good, but my favorite was Point Reves - softest and most flavorful. The wine was a sparkling red, Emeri Pink Moscato. It was tasty but not very interesting - almost like a punch.
I'm a little tired this morning, hence all the sentences beginning with "it was" - I much prefer active verbs, but they're still sleeping.
