On April 20th I had the distinction of hosting another outstanding wine dinner at Citrus Club in Orlando. This amazing dinner featured Chef Reiner Drygala, CEC's cuisine paired with the equally amazing wines from Airfield Estate in Washington. All of the grapes for these wines were estate grown, nurtured with care and vinified to perfection. The pairings were near perfect as the Chef actually uses the wines from each course in the dishes from each course, usually as a reduction sauce. This extra effort really blends the food and wine into a harmonious dance for two. Some attendees noted that the dinner was the "best ever."
