As anticipated, the recently passed Holiday Season sipped by at a speed which really seemed like the blink of an eye! So much goes on during the month of December, that time really does seem to fly.
To all of you who helped to make our Holiday Open House a really special event, thank you for coming by to enjoy complimentary food, wine & music, and to sing a few songs with us to kick off our holiday season. Greg & I decided to take a few days off right before Christmas, and enjoyed a nice visit to the Russian River area, where we took in some of the local cuisine at “Boon”, had a great lunch with friends in Healdsburg at “Willy’s”, and took a nice drive to Occidental and on to Bodega Bay, where we enjoyed a beautiful day, in spite of the forecast of rain. We arrived home late in the day on Christmas Eve to rain, hail, thunder, lightning, snow and a tornado warning!! Kind of blew out our plans of attending a party up on Grizzly Flat Road, but we did our best to have fun at home with my sister Denise, who visited from Paso Robles.
Our New Year’s Eve Gala Wine Paired Dinner was a huge success, and all seemed to have a wonderful time. Greg’s food was better than ever, and the wines paired very well with each course.
So for the New Year, we would like to bring back the once popular “12 @ 6” dinners. This will not start until March, but at that time, on one Wednesday each month, we will feature a local winemaker at a table with 12 guests. We will offer a 3 course meal, with each course paired with one of their wines, and the cost will be just $50.00 per person, which will include all food, wine, tax and gratuity.
Also, we already have reservations for our Valentine’s Day Winemaker Dinner. I’ll post more details about that dinner as we go, but it is always a great time! That dinner is a 4-course dinner paired with the winemakers selections for $70.00 per person, which is inclusive of food, wine, tax & gratuity.
In the New Year, we stand by our commitment to quality food and service, here @ Gold Vine Grill. Greg & I are very grateful to look forward to the coming year with a lot of hope and enthusiasm. We are both back on our feet and thriving, so life is looking really great! We can’t wait to get some new ideas to make the Gold Vine Grill a “better than ever” place to come for a great meal and a good time.
Please feel free to comment on this blog, or to leave a review of a meal.
We wish you all the very best in 2016, and hope to see you
