On June 14, 2011, the Buzz held another in their series of Wine Club Dinners. Like the others we have attended, this was such a delight and a wonderful dinner and the chance to taste some different wines. The parings were great. The scores I gave the wines [20] were pretty closely grouped together. The wines pictured here on the left are the three wines of Cristie’s Choice. But each of the wines was superbly matched to the entrees selected. Below are some photos of the entrees along with the wines that were presented.
If you don’t have anything specifically planned for Sunday, June 19 at 6:30pm , Father’s Day, the Buzz is holding their Quarterly Wine Dinner.
