Tom's 50th Birthday Celebration

Tom turned 50 on November 10th and I planned for us and a special group of friends to do a Wine Blending 101 at Urban Wineworks in Portland.
Mary & I arrived early to set up food for the celebration - here we are enjoying a flight of Bishop Creek Cellar wines....the Pinot Gris and Vintner's Blend are both very good!

The Wine Blending "kits" are set up for each person.

Hanging out with friends before the "party" begins.

The gang is all ready to learn how to blend.

This is Leigh our wine blending expert...she is bottling our special blends
from the barrels at the shop...we blended 3 Walla Walla wines
(Cabernet Sauvignon from Abeja, Cabernet Franc and Syrah from Three Rivers).

In the end, everyone went home with a bottle of their personal blend.
