You came, you cooked, you ate (and drank)

Not to toot our own horn, but last night's Italian-inspired feast was some of the best food yet—and the wine pairings from Lot 18 made the evening even more special. The night started with white bean crostini with a smear of fennel pesto,  a hands-on gnocci making class, and the crisp, citrusy Ordine di San Giuseppe Gavi. Next up: That gnocci, with the sweetest butternut squash maybe ever, fried sage leaves, and a barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc from Elizabeth Spencer that blew everyone away. For the main course, wild boar and kale salad paired well with the Vitanza Rosso di Montalcino. Dessert was a cream cheese tiramisu with coffee- and rye-soaked lady fingers and the Westerly Happy Canyon Viognier and the evening carried on for hours after. Here, some photos from the night (whenever we could steal ourselves away from all that good food, drink, and company).
