Winemaker's Journal -- Ohme Gardens Wine and Food Gala rocks

Marco Martinez here filling in for Rick Steigmeyer. Rick had to work Saturday, so I filled in for him and attended Saturday evening's Ohme Wine & Food Gala. Lucky me! The annual event, organized by NCW Wine Country, is promoted as THE garden party of the summer. I won't argue with that. Hats off to Becky Driscoll and NCW Wine Country for pulling off a great event.Eight wineries, two cideries and nine eateries teamed up to provide food with matching pours. The selections featured both savory and sweet offerings.
