Celebracion de Chile

     Last weekend Dan and I had the best meal I've ever had at a fundraiser.  This one was for hospice and Alzheimer's care services at Promedica Health Systems and was catered by Evan's Street Station, in Tecumseh, Michigan.  The wines were from Santa Rita Vineyard in Chile. As if good wine and good food weren't enough, Jose Villa Lobos, flew all the way from Chile to describe the wine for each course - delightful!
