June 28, 2014 was the last time we tasted DDO (at Huber’s).  We tasted 7 vintages back then and the 3 we are having at this event came in #1, #2, and #3 group favorites in 2014. It will be interesting to see how they are developing.
 
Dana Atwood went to high school with Ashley Tidwell, the Wine Educator for the McMenamim’s chain. When we asked which restaurant could serve the best meal for one of our events, Ashley immediately referred us to Café’ Zeus.
 
Café Zeus’ menu features local ingredients and the well-trained waitstaff provides a comfortable and welcoming guest experience. The menu changes frequently and at the will of the chef. So the menu below is conceptual and may not be exactly the same on September 24th.  The wines will remain the same:
 
NV      Bereche & Fils Brut Reserve                          
Grand Cru Champagne
Fresh Olympia Oyster Shooters
 
2010     Joseph Drouhin Chassagne Montrachet
Embazeles Vineyard
