June 13, 2015 – Kagie Wine Party

Kagie Wine Party

Hosted by Fred and Pat

It’s not June without another amazing round of wine tasting and friends at the Kagie Wine Party! This year was a very special treat with a cameo appearance of wines from Mollydooker, out of the McLaren Vale area of Australia. Wine fans got to savor the Carnival of Love (Shiraz) and Enchanted Path (Shiraz/Cabernet) among some other really great wines too! Naturally, we soaked up the wine with yummy appetizers brought by the guests, Pat’s magical meatballs, desserts galore, and cheese. Oh sweet delicious cheese…especially Pat and Sarah’s favorite, Brillat-Savarin. This triple cream brie is so creamy and delicious it is like a nectar from the cheese gods.

Wine, cheese, and friends is a great way to celebrate June.

Until next year!

5 years and counting: a celebration in the most appropriate way

Organized by: Don and Jen

Who can believe we have been hosting Dinner Club for 5 years this month?! It is not often that random ideas said over a bottle of wine and a casual Italian dinner would turn into a monthly engagement that could bring together people with such different backgrounds. This is the power of connecting. This is the power of a good meal and a bottle of red. This is the power of people.

Don and Jen – brimming with class and creativity – helped us celebrate our 5 year anniversary in style with a wine tasting at the LDV Wine Gallery in Scottsdale and catered by Triple Dot Food Truck. The weather was amazing and that made the setting the epitome of relaxing and magical at the same time. Chef Josefina – who is from Argentina – runs Triple Dot Food Truck with her Dutch husband and is seen cruising around many parts of the valley. They cherish the ability to do things out of the ordinary and truck menus provide a random mixture between Argentinian street food and Dutch favorites with a mixture of other random favorites. This evening we started out with a charcuterie board and then moved to a delicious helping of chicken paella with red peppers and saffron rice. Yum! For dessert, there was a very rich but decadent tiramisu pudding. All of the dishes were paired with wines – both new release and some old favorites – from Lawrence Dunham. Curt and Peggy also spent time with us sharing a history of the wines and talking about the process. What a couple of awesome people!

After the dinner, Don surprised everyone with personally engraved wine glasses for every DD which celebrated our 5th Anniversary. He even had the great idea to incorporate our logo, created by our very own Fred K! What a memorable and special 5 year anniversary!

Thank you to Don and Jen for putting all this together and a big CHEERS to the DoubleDs!

Here is hoping for 5 more wonderful years with all of you lovable rascals! I wouldn’t change us for the world.
