Belvoir Winery. It is one of my favorite places to visit in the Kansas City area. It’s in Liberty, which is northeast of where I live. It’s a grand, historical place with a few extra visitors. It’s known for its ghostly friends. They have had Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters and a few other paranormal shows film there. The owner was making fun of how exaggerated Ghost Adventures was being during the screening of the show. Zac Bagans is so dramatic. I enjoy watching it for that fact. (Plus, they visit some pretty cool locations regardless of haunt status)
I went to a Girl Scout cookie and Wine Pairing there. They did well at pairing each cookie with a wine. This is how it went down.
The Chardonnel was paired with the Shortbread cookie.
Plumeria -- Lemonade
Sorelle Dolci – Lemonade (My second favorite wine there)
Red Wines (I'm not a huge red wine fan, but the cookies did fit the wines)
Norton – Peanut Butter Patty
Casanova – Thin Mint
Lucky Pierre – Peanut Butter Patty
Naked Pink – Didn’t have a pair, but we got to sample the wine. (This is also my v. fav. wine at the winery, so delicious)
Boos – Caramel Delites (The Boos is the Norton plus Brandy. It's super potent and you cannot drink a lot of it. Like a sip was enough, the smell is that strong)
The same evening as the Wine Tasting, there was a Ladies' Night Out Event. This is where people get to sample/buy wine and go vendor shopping. I enjoyed the vendor shopping. I picked up some Paparazzi Jewelry and some Sh*t. Wait, what? There is a vendor that sells things with the word Sh*t in it. It's hilarious and my plan is to bring the items to a potluck type thing with friends.
My friend that I was with gave me one of her water colors. It matches so well with the Owl I have in my front room already. Once I get the front room painted all of them are going on the wall together.
Girl Scout Cookies and Wine? So cool!ReplyDelete
They did them at a few of the wineries. Girl Scouts received $6 of every ticket sold.Delete
I love the idea of a wine and Girl Scout cookie tasting. That just sounds so fun!ReplyDelete
