Wine and Food

On Sunday, 17 May, Robin and I went to what may be the last Gamekeeper Restaurant and Lounge wine dinner. They are going out of business. (I think Denny's is still open!) Chef Mark Owsley and Ste Chapelle Winery winemaker Chuck Devlin did a superb job of matching the wines with the dinner. But then, Chef Mark Owsley did a fantastic job in preparing the outstanding meal. Here is what we had. All wines were Ste Chapelle.
