DINNER 108: Tuesday, April 18, 2006

It’s the third Tuesday of the month, and that usually means the WINE DINNER at the IRON HORSE INN. I met up with David & Chie and we enjoyed the following menu, celebrating the Graziano Family Vineyards. Jen from Tramonte & Sons Distributors guided us through the variety of wines offered by this California winery. The dinner was great, the wines delicious, and the evening a lot of fun.
