Saturday, August 1, 2009

Saturday was a beautiful day. Warm but with a cooling afternoon breeze that blows up the valley from the ocean. There were several events occurring at the same time, the Annual Wine Club Member BBQ, a smaller group meeting in the Patio and, of course, our regular visitors.

The BBQ was held under the trees with the same caterer we have used for several years. As in the past the food was delicious and a fitting companion to our wines.

Winemaker Bruce McGuire took small groups to the winery to sample wine directly from the barrels. Chris again provided  us with wonderful Flamenco Guitar Music. Chris is that tall fellow who often works in the Santa Barbara Winery Tasting Room. The whole thing was organized by Mirella Ramirez our Events and Visitors Manager at the Lafond Winery. Suzanne Fitzgerald, from Santa Barbara Winery, was also there pouring wine and greeting members.
