items especially for wine lovers. From the very best in wine barrel furnishings to a huge assortment of gift items, cork cages, wine preservation systems, decanters, corkscrews of every kind, photography, artisan food and craft products and so much more. David and his wife, Annie, are in the process of getting their liquor license, and will soon be offering wine tasting at their shop. Our dinner was catered by “Zest-it-up”, and started off with a beautiful spread of charcuterie and live music. We were able to source some wine from Burbank Ranch Winery to pair with all the courses. Our salad course was made with a lemon vinaigrette that was available in the Grape Encounter shop (and sold out quickly when our group bought everything on the shelf). The dinner continued with spicy shrimp and a mustard and panko encrusted salmon topped with aioli. We paired this with the Burbank Ranch Tempranillo. What? Tempranillo with salmon? Yep…it work due to the mustard and aioli. Nice pairing.
