We didn't know what we were getting into at the end of our day with the Garys. Gary Pisoni invited us for a quick ride in his 1969 Jeep. What we thought was going to be a nice liesurly cruise became a record-setting ring around the vineyard. Hats flying off, phones flung in the air and three guys in the back seat wondering what they had got themselves into. It was an experience that none of us will ever forget, and I guess that 's the point. The hat and phone were found in the end and we went safely onto our next appointment.
Many say that wine is best consumed with good food and good people. Both were in abundance at our lunch at Pisoni Vineyard. Margarette had sat out a wonderful spread for us all. Homemade lamb and pork sausages, a wonderful salad and one of the best pasta with red sauce most of us had tasted in a long time. Locally grown lamb chops and a nice selection of cheese was a perfect ending to a great meal. The foods went great with all the wines served.
We were sorry not to be able to break bread on this amazing table inside what would have been the Pisoni winery if local officials would have approved it. It was such a beautiful day so we enjoyed our meal outside.
