Carnitas and tequila?

Carnitas and tequila?  That was Vinomaker's proposition to me earlier in the week.  How could a Vinogirl refuse?
Well, I'm always up for carnitas, but the tequila?  I think I'll pass. Besides, there was plenty of great wine on offer at the 'Carnitas and Tequila' event at Mi Sueño Winery this afternoon.  Dead pig - with tortillas, frijoles, pico de gallo and spicy sauce - was available in abundance, as was a plethora of Cabernet Sauvignons, Syrahs, Pinot noirs and red blends.  Rolando Herrera is not only the proprietor of Mi Sueño, but he also is the winemaker for a butt-load (technical term) of other wineries, amongst them Baldacci, Coho, Longfellow and Spotted Owl.
What a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny, January afternoon.  Olé!

"Dead pig." V-girl, you, V-dog, and Thud:they don't do veggies.
Sounds like you are having a good time:-)

NHW: Love most everything, except celery.

What a wonderful surprise.

I HATE celery. It reminds me of kerosene and infiltrates everything it touches.

Thud said...

NHW...other than spuds I never met a veggie I didn't hate unless you count mushy peas.

Tomasso: Yes, it positively poisons everything else in the fridge...can't have the stuff in the house.

Thud: Although I love mushy peas, they only barely resemble the vegetable they once were.
