Last week’s Ladies Night was an extraordinary event featuring wines from around the globe. Guests had the opportunity to taste six different wines: Ritzman Riesling from Germany, Ventana Chardonnay and Haraszthy Zinfandel from California, Brumaio Pinot Grigio from Italy, Viña Mayor Tinto Roble from Spain and Baron Des Chartrons Bordeaux from France.
Here’s a fun little factoid I learned: when tasting wines, it’s best to start with the lightest and work your way up to the darker red ones. You know when people swirl their wine in the glass? It’s because as the wine coats the sides of the glass, it releases its bouquet (a fancy term for its aroma). Also, when you finally get to drink the wine, you should always sip a little bit and swirl it around in your mouth so all your taste buds can experience the flavor.
Drinking wine is definitely an acquired taste and most people tend to stick to a certain type of wine. I, personally, prefer the lighter wines. My favorite was the Brumaio Pinot Grigio. Not only was it delicious, the price was pretty attractive at only $13 a bottle.
A crowd favorite was the Zinfandel ($18) and Bordeaux ($13).
If you plan on coming to December 9th’s Ladies Night, you’ll have another opportunity to try the wines and buy them.
December 9 is the last Ladies Night of the year. As usual, attendants will receive 20% off their purchases (excluding consignment items), get entered in a raffle and enjoy complimentary appetizers. As a special treat, guests can see a holiday makeup demo from a professional. Fun, yes?
Thursday’s Ladies Night drew out a fantastic crowd. When you mix shopping, sales and food, you really can’t go wrong.
Guests came to Di: Amoré Gift Boutique to get 20% off their purchases. Di: Amoré is one of those unique boutiques in the beautiful Downtown Fullerton area. The boutique sells everything from original artwork to handmade greeting cards to holiday items.
Now, you’re probably wondering what kind of delicious food Brownstone offered. The menu was inspired by, of course, autumn. An amazing pumpkin soup warmed guests coming in from the cool night air. The apple and brie stuffed pastries provided the perfect balance between savory and sweet. And it isn’t a Brownstone event without their famous creamy dill meatballs (one of my personal favorites after Brownstone’s more sought after tomato basil bisque soup). To wash down all that food was a delightful mixing of sparkling apple cider and champagne.
Before you get depressed that you missed this amazing event, we’re having another one on November 18 and December 9 from 5 pm to 8 pm. Bring all your girlfriends to shop, eat and drink!
