36 Hours in San Diego
A special invitation for Paul Mathew to present our wines and speak at the CMAA Conference in San Diego, why yes, That sounds wonderful.
Leaving from Santa Rosa airport is a great luxury, we left home at 9a.m. and we're in our Hotel at noon. Travel doesn't get much better than that.
First off lunch. An easy board walk stroll for a little ceviche with a unique addition of peanuts and a great presentation.
The CMAA evening begins with hors d'oeuvres on the 34th floor over looking San Diego's sky line.
Pork belly on a fork
We sat down to 8 whites for the first two courses, Cured Salmon with Sauv Blanc and Vermentino
Poached Halibut paired with four Chardonnays including the PMV 2013 Weeks Vineyard.
Moving on to the next flight of four Pinot Noirs, 2 from 2012 and two from 2013 all from Sonoma County, paired with pork loin wrapped in prosciutto.
Main course of braised short ribs with 4 bolder reds that included Cabernets and syrah.
Next day recovering by the pool and awaiting our favorite happy hour in the state at Nobu.
