Assemblage Monte Bello: What An Event!

 Still gasping for breath … still crazy after all these days …

And what an event it was!

From the food …

Cowgirl Creamery Co-Founder Sue Conley Sharing Her Wares!

 

Charcuterie from Fatted Calf (including special event-only Sausage and Pate made with Ridge wine!)

 

My hometown heroes! Gayle's Bakery brings the grains!

 

To the music …

The very excellent "Real Time" dropping swing like Gallieo dropped an orange!

and the setting …

And a cheers to you too, Mr. Man-Who-Noticed-I-Was-Taking-A-Picture!

plus the extra special guest hosts …

Bodhi holding court!

to the wine (can’t forget the wine!) …

No, MY Ridge wine is better!

it was just almost too good to be true!

But of course what TRULY makes an event like this so special is not just the beauty of the place …

"Monte Bello" indeed ...

 the chillaxedeness of the hang …

Chillaxedness ...

 or the extra-special Production Team Hosts …

Karen Schmidt, Director of Quality Control/Chemist, Monte Bello ...

 it’s YOU!

Whether you were in the Old Winery Barn tasting library wines and barrel samples …

 or in the picnic area enjoying our wines with your friends and family over delicious picnic lunches …

Heyy Boo Boo, I think I see a picnic basket!

 or vibin’ to the jazz on the knoll …

Alphabetic Excellence: J,K,L =Jazz, Knoll, Love!

 you were great. Wherever you were, you were great. Even when you were parking your car on the ridge behind the vines …

Now, THAT'S a parking lot!!!

 you were great.

You were great to pour wine for …

Shun "Francisco" Ishikubo, Assistant Production Manager ...

 you were great to feed …

Omigod, cheese platter!

 and you were great to perform for.

There ain't no wrong notes on Marshall's piano!

 

Really. You were great. But I have to say, you may have worn us out!

Dang! My Ah So broke!

From all of us at Ridge, thank you so very much for attending Assemblage Monte Bello, 2011!
