20 Valley Pairings

Wine is one of the agreeable and essential ingredients of life.
Julia Child, American chef and cookbook author (1912-2004)

The wineries of Twenty Valley are hosting another great passport event this weekend and next weekend, with many highlighting their newest vintages. As with all the passport events hosted by the Twenty Valley Tourism Association, the wine tasting is accompanied by delicious nibbles. Bonus! This season's "Get Fresh in the Valley" passport offers 24 pairings and a chance to meet a lot of friendly people who obviously enjoy having visitors stop by to taste and chat about their wines. Spring means lots of fresh whites and rosé in time for summer meals outdoors so we are tasting a different selection than offered with the Fall passports. There are also a few reds thrown in just to make the mix more interesting. A new and fun addition to the programme is collecting recipes for each tasty morsel to create a "Get Fresh" cookbook. These events just keep getting better and better! Well done 20 Valley!
