Despite yesterday’s looming grey clouds, the light was shining on our Santa Lucia Highlands wine tasting! 27 wineries from this small, but strong, AVA presented nearly 100 wonderful wines. The selection consisted primarily of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but was broken up by a handful of Rieslings and Syrahs. While it’s nearly impossible to single out one winery from such a rich collection, a few of my favorites included Loring, Pisoni, Belle Glos and Pelerin.

Honorable mention to the staff of West Hollywood’s BLT Steak who weaved in an out of the 300+ crowd to seamlessly remove glasses and refresh hors d’oeuvres. Thanks to everyone else who made the event possible, and to those of you who joined us to discover the wonderful offerings of Santa Lucia Highlands.
