Movable Feast 2011

No Gravatar

We closed the winery down on Saturday the 21st, as we do every year on the third Saturday in May, for our annual party to end all parties – the Movable Feast.  This party allows us an opportunity to celebrate our CellarMaster members, enjoy fantastic food and pull some of our older bottles out of the cellar to enjoy with friends old and new.  We hosted one of our largest groups in recent history – over 260 party attendees came to eat, drink, and be merry at Movable Feast 2011.  With Cajun-themed food (think gumbo),  music courtesy of the talented Louisiana-based band L’Angelus and an impromptu conga line, it was a very memorable afternoon.  To make a special occasion even more so, Author George Taber (formerly a writer for TIME magazine and the only journalist present at the 1976 Paris Tasting) was able to join in the festivities to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the 1976 Paris Tasting that put Chateau Montelena on the world wine map.  It’ll be a tough one to beat, but we’re ambitious enough to try to make Movable Feast 2012 even better.
