mentioned that I was heading back to the Food and Wine Conference in Orlando, Florida. This was my second year attending the conference, this time with huge thanks to Gallo Family Vineyards for sponsoring my trip! I wrote another recap post telling about my favorite sessions, and what I took away from the weekend, but I wanted to write this post in order to highlight some of the fantastic moments we enjoyed with Gallo.
I thought one of the highlights of the weekend was the Blogger Blend put on by Gallo Family on opening night. The Sunday Supper family has been working with Gallo on an ongoing basis since the beginning of this year, and this event was a chance for all of us to finally raise a toast to our times around the family table together - in person!
Riesling, a sweet white with notes of juicy peach, ripe citrus, and honeysuckle that seem to dance over your tongue. It's very versatile, playing nicely with a variety of foods from the simplest pasta dish to some get-down-with-it bbq ribs. We enjoyed cheeses from all over the spectrum, and saw first hand how the Riesling complemented, accented, and even changed the different flavor profiles.
This Riesling will be seeing all sorts of love from my kitchen, both as an ingredient and a meal accompaniment.
Food and Wine Conference!
