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.

Chardonnay

Winemaker's Journal -- Chardonnay every way

Chardonnay is one of the world's favorite white wines. It's the most purchased wine in the U.S., accounting for 20 percent of all wine sales. That's not to say it's loved by all. While many love the wine's buttery, snooty associations, others think of it as the Merlot of white wines, to be avoided lest risk of faked pomposity. And some people just don't like it because others do.
