Friday Night Wine Tasting Dinner Party
Last night, Tim and I attended a wine tasting dinner party. Each couple was tasked with bring an interesting wine along with a dish that paired well.
We chose to bring a Masi Campofiorin as it brings back fond memories of visiting the winery during our trip to the Verona region in Italy. As it’s a more robust wine, we paired it with Italian meatballs in a fresh tomato sauce, accompanied by basil from our container garden.
We had a wonderful evening that lasted into the early hours of the morning. The wine flowed and the discussions alternated between fluffy and heated (especially when someone brought up O.J. Simpson!). An added bonus to the evening was listening to a very talented couple play the piano and sing.
For the event, I wore a 50s-style Bettie Page dress that I recently purchased from Modcloth. I was inspired to purchase it after seeing it on Tanesha in her Girl With Curves blog. It was a bit long for me so I had it altered and I’d just picked it up earlier in the day. I added Chanel sunglasses, a bright red Fendi bag, and my Guess shoes. It was a fun outfit.
