I am so sorry I missed the first GulpClub event for the public. I went to North Carolina to meet my New Grandson, Landon! You can see by the picture he is a super model genius. So for this recap I turn the reporting reins over to our Gran Cru Hostess and Founder, Coreen!!!
Take it away Coreen -

September 26 brought us all out to the Bx Beer Depot for our first event through GulpClub that was open to the general public! It was such a great day, there were a bunch of New Faces and twice as many Familiar Faces! From start to finish, the event could not have gone smoother. We had the tables set and ready to go when guests arrived, the weather was perfect and our ‘old hat’ Gulpers made all of the first timers feel so very welcomed. You are all such a great group of people, I am so grateful for you being a part of these events.
I will take a stab at the attendees, please make a comment if your name is not listed, or if you know someone that was there that is not listed: Michelle Getty, Ryan Mowatt, Rach Sam, Dana Moritz, Mariana Nascimento, Pete Glocker, Deb Knepp, Maggie and Don Kuhn, Kristina Parker, Wally Lurz, Adriel Wright, another Dana Hatcher, Eddie Ramos-Zahina, Jim Brogan, Kelly Schultz, Brigham and Dan Wilson, Andrew Segaloff, Dorothy Segaloff, Pam Schuster, Ashley Walker, Thalia White, Tracy Cottle, Bryan No3, Eddie Ramos-Zahina, Johnny Zahina-Ramos, Yolanda Gaona, Eric (didn’t catch a last name).
The pairings were as follows:
The Crossings Chardonnay from New Zealand matched flavors with a sweet and spicy pineapple and black bean corn salsa and spicy wonton chips.
Chablis Premier Cru Reserve and Tuna Niciose Canape.
With this pairing we move to the more familiar style of Chardonnay. The Bramito Del Cervo Chardonnay paired with decadent Napa Valley Mac and Cheese.
Cuvaison Carnerro's Chardonnay with a chicken/apple sausage flatbread covered in chardonnay carmelized onions, and 6 Italian cheeses.
Lai Lai Chardonnay from Chile paired with a little gem called Peachy Paradise Tarts with toasted coconut.
Thank you all for coming. I am looking forward to another update on our trip to California from Kristina next weekend. She will be bringing us up to speed on any new developments or details.
See you there!
Also, Save the Dates for our two upcoming Wine Events. November 13, we will be doing Bordeaux-inspired blends and on December 4, we will be celebrating the holidays. More info to come!
