On Tuesday evening, November 25, the Tiedemann On Wines Wine Club held its third Wine Club event at McCarthy’s On the Riverwalk here in Elkhart.
It was an outstanding event from a number of aspects. First, my daughter and wine partner, Elizabeth Carris, and I got to work together for the evening. As many of you know, since her son was stricken with cancer she has been unable to participate in our many Tiedemann Wine events. What great fun it was to have her back in action for the evening. Secondly, we had a sold out event! We had seating for 34 and they all were filled in advance with a waiting list.
McCarthy’s kitchen team headed by Terri Rohr did an outstanding job of preparing the evening’s small plate pairings. These were the event’s food and wine pairings:
Smoked Lobster Dip paired with a 2012 Lagasca Viognier, a Spanish white wine
Asparagus – Cheese Tartines paired with a 2013 White Oak Sauvignon Blanc, a Napa Valley white wine
Southwest Duck Triangles paired with a 2010 Torre de Barreda Amigos, a Spanish red wine
Lollipop Lamb Chops paired with a 2010 Torre de Barreda Pañofino Cepas Viejas, a Spanish red wine
A special thanks to the great folks at McCarthy’s who assisted in the wine pouring and food service: Jeanne Kern, Phyllis Kelich and Doni Kuehn. They certainly were instrumental in the success of the evening’s activities.
I would also like to thank all the new members of the Tiedemann On Wines Wine Club who joined our group at the McCarthy’s event. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at future Wine Club events.
