WSR – September 2011 – Charlene’s Surprises

Every Septemeber the wine group meets after the summer break to start the year off on Charlene’s patio to see what adventure she was on for the summer, this year was no exception, she went to Rhode Island!   The tasting did not include all wines from that region as she actually included wines from other areas as well, France, Italy, Argentina and California.  Food dishes were made to go with the wines and they were very tasty indeed.  I will look forward to next year to see what region she ventures too!
