BBQ on the Patio – 5th Annual

This past weekend many of my wine drinking friends and significant others (you know who you are)  attended a wonderful afternoon evening on our patio enjoying the pool, food and wine brought by all. 

I do have to say that the food was in perfect proportion as there seem to be the right amount of appetizers, salads, main courses and deserts to accompany the wines. To name a few I remember: The fresh avocado dip, BBQ pulled pork,  cucumber salad, lasagna, tri-tip,  teriyaki chicken, bratwurst, fresh bread and garlic butter, yummy…..   This was all followed up by what the afternoon was all about…. wine!

I happen to do an inventory of some of the bottles that were left behind, some got thrown out and if they are not on the list, let me know and I will add them.  There were a few that stood out such as the Margeaux, Diamond Creek, Kynsi and of course the homemade wines of Richard Garnacha, Graciano and Rose’s.  Here is a partial list of wines that may ring a bell that you may go search for:
