Tonight we will sampling the 2011 Chardonnay and the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Old York Cellars. I will be participating in the online wine tasting from my home, sampling the wines and pairing them with chocolate from Laurie’s chocolates.
In addition to the fabulous wines, another reason why I agreed to participate in the online wine tasting is because Old York Cellars is supporting my beloved State of New Jersey. From New Jersey, for New Jersey and in support of New Jersey!
