Christmas Boutiques and Craft Faires
Dunlap Community Club Craft Fair and Central Sierra Chamber of Commerce Boutique
We managed to attend both the Christmas Boutique at the Central Sierra Chamber of Commerce and the Christmas Craft Faire at the Dunlap Community Club. Thank you to all those who stopped by to see us and wish us well. We introduced several new gift basket styles adding to our already popular wines. Of course, the pecans and walnuts were enjoyed by all.
Orionids Wine Walk & Watch Party
Riffelhof Vineyards hosted a Orionids Wine, Walk, and Watch Party on Friday, 19 October 2018 in appreciation of our wine club members. A dinner was prepared by Mountain Top Chef champion, Chef Jack, and included crustless mini quiches with bacon and asparagus with a vegetarian stuffed mushroom. For the entree we served butternut squash soup with caramelized onions and apples with the option of a bacon crumbled garnish. In addition a mixed green salad was served with pickled red onions and sliced strawberry. The star of the meal was roasted chicken with white wine sauce, or a vegetarian roasted butternut squash, either of which was served with a cauliflower mash. Topping off the meal dessert of creme brulee with apples and reduced red wine sauce was served.
The first annual Rocktoberfest was held at the legendary Pinehurst Lodge with live music and BBQ. Several vendors proffered their wares along side artisan wine and craft beer tasting. Nearly all ended up dancing by the pool.
