Yesterday evening we thoroughly enjoyed a tasting of Rose’ just down the road at the Hawkes Tasting Room. Our dear friends, Jake and Laura Hawkes, don’t do anything halfway–from making wonderful wines to fabulous food, and this gathering was no exception.

The bottle lineup

The table was covered with glasses all displaying various shades of pink. After enjoying a spread of culinary treats, we got down to business and tasted through eight different wines. The winner: Preston Winery of Dry Creek Valley. Copain Wine Cellars and J Vineyards & Winery, both of the Russian River Valley, also placed high among our group.

It was such a lovely evening, I had to share some pictures. You just might be inspired to host a pink party of your own. Cheers!

Pink, pink and more pink!

Yum! Delicious cheeses and meats, deviled eggs, etc…

BLT sandwiches–one of my favorite summer foods!

Zinnias from Jake and Laura’s garden add a splash of color.
