Inaugural Crush Party

This weekend we started what might be a new tradition. We got a big group together and had our inaugural Crush Party! In an effort to celebrate the grape crushing season and harvest, each couple brought a bottle of red and white wine from a specific country. We shared a little bit about each of them and then drank! It was a unique way to get to try some new wines. We also had an abundance of cheeses for the tastings. The most popular by far was the St Andre cheese with a fig spread that we also found at Whole Foods. Highly recommended!

Our wine list was as follows:
