Wine Country Food

The final installation of my honeymoon posts: food!  While John and I were in the area, we had the pleasure of visiting the Mayo Family Winery.  It was such a wonderful experience.  They have a tasting room and, at a separate location, a reserve room.  We did a tasting at the tasting room (obviously) and then moved onto the reserve room for a seven course tasting menu paired with their wines.  It was amazing!

Fragrant fish mousse, cucumber salad, and banana leaf pair with a pinot gris
Crisply fried chicken with tahini dipping sauce paired with a chardonnay
Miso braised pork belly paired with Reserve Barbera
New York strip satay paired with a zinfandel
Chicken and beef meatballs with jasmine rice paired with a meritage
Lamb shank stew paired with a cabernet sauvignon
Pineapple brulee and ginger custard paired with a late harvest gewurztraminer
It was AMAZING!  John and I actually joined their wine club and are eagerly awaiting our first shipment.  A big thank you to the Mayo family for giving us a wonderful experience!
