Complex and loaded with exciting flavor, I used the CZAR’s Gourmet Oregon Pinot Szechuan Sauce to glaze grilled party wings.
After breakfast, we loaded up on a bus and left McMinnville for a “mystery” trip to a winery. Destination top secret – no one knew where we were headed. Folks that had gone on winery tours the day before came back with fun stories of guessing games on the bus with clever clues, suspense and anticipation building with the winery finally revealed somewhere in route.
Nicks Italian Cafe just may be our favorite restaurant. Heading to the International Pinot Noir Celebration, we planned an arrival one day early just so we could dine at Nick’s. We visited Nick’s last year on an Oregon wine tasting trip and the memories of good food, atmosphere and fun were still firmly etched in our memories. I don’t know what it is about Nick’s, but when you’re there, everyone is having such a good time, lots of laughter and lots of smiles.
