The 2007 Taste of Terroir

A feast for the eyes and the stomach, this annual event sponsored by the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association features the best of the season. Premier chefs and winemakers team up to create tantalizing food and wine pairings. Judges vote for the evening's stand-outs in a blind taste test. Guests get to cast their ballots as well.



This year's Best Expression of Local Ingredients Award went to Garré Winery & Garré Café for their 2004 Gina Maries Private Reserve Merlot and Smoked Quail stuffed Strawberry with Goat Cheese and aged Balsamic Reduction.
