Fall Wine Tasting, 2015

I totally forgot to post this. I drafted it and never published! Sorry my recap is so late. This was a great evening for the 3rd year in a row I have attended.

On Thursday, November 19, Krause’s Market and Hazen Bottle Shop held the annual fall wine tasting. This is one of the days I really look forward to all year. It’s a fun excuse to get dressed up, drink wine, try fabulous food and see so many friends out having fun. What is NOT to love?

Not to mention, all of this for only $5?!? Crazy!

I think sometimes small towns get a bad wrap for being boring, nothing to do, etc. This is a great example of our town actually has a lot of events but you just have to put yourself out there and be willing to try new experiences. We have a few friends who don’t go because they don’t like wine. Well, try it! There were 26+ options available! Also, a cash bar was set up so you could get a drink and at least nibble on some food. But anyway, onto the good stuff.

The food as always was glorious. They prepare a ton of beautiful appetizer featuring foods you can buy right at Krause’s, presented in little bites, perfect for the holidays. I loved the chocolate dipped chips – so easy and addicting. The raspberry chocolate cake was heavenly.

Above are a few savory options. The salad was wonderful and you can’t really beat Brie cheese!

One thing I love, besides the samples of wine included in your $5 admission, you can purchase four more $5 tickets to try more expensive wines or champagnes that you might not ever buy on your own. A great way for us low brow wino’s to try some top shelf tastes. I got to try Dom Perignon! Probably the only time I’ll be able to say that. Ha!

The meatballs are always a hit and I particularly loved the cranberry brie tart. Delicious!

I have to end this post on a funny note and hopefully my self professed beer-drinking, whiskey-loving husband won’t mind. While I don’t have to drag him here, it isn’t his favorite alcohol of choice. So imagine my surprise when I turn around and he is showing three beautiful ladies the joy of pairing red wine with raspberry chocolate cake. I had to take a photo. Too good not to share and a memory I’ll keep until the next wine tasting. Kudos to Krause’s Market and Hazen Bottle Shop for another fun evening.
