DC and I had the pleasure of attending a wine dinner at the Twisted Vine last night. The wines focused on southern Rhone and were provided by the Wine Store (aka Warehouse Liquors). Unfortunately, I neglected to take a copy of the list of wines served. Suffice to say, they were delicious and very well-paired with each course. Mike did an excellent job introducing each wine with its course. Highlights of the meal included a wild mushroom purse with a balsamic cream sauce, lamb chops with a scalloped-type potato side and a poached pear with a chocolate goat cheese filling.
Patty, the owner, was a warm and gracious hostess who really made everyone feel welcome. The big take away of the evening was, Twisted Vine also serves food. I would add to that and say the Twisted Vine serves terrific food in a warm and welcoming environment.
We look forward to returning and hope there will be more of these special events.
