Tonight’s Bb33 dinner featured the wines of the Trinchero Family Estates with a meal prepared by executive sous-chef Derek Martens, all hosted by the director of sales and marketing for Trinchero, Brett Marshall.
The Trinchero family are the folks behind the multi-million dollar invention we all know as White Zinfandel, a wine that dates back to 1974 and was the result of a stuck fermentation. Tonight 6 wines were poured and a fabulous dinner was served (minus any white Zin) and it all started with the 2009 Seaglass Sauvignon Blanc, a light and fruity white that had a sweet sensation on the tongue – a really delightful summer sipper served during the pre-dinner half hour (***½).
Moving on, wine-wise, there was the 2008 Main Street Chardonnay (Los Alamos Vineyard) from Santa Barbara; funny story here ... (to find the humour in the evening and see pictures from the dinner, click here)
