Today was one of those days when everything went well. I started baking Alsatian Onion Tarts around 6:15am. They were due at the vineyard at 11:00. We had scheduled The Mission Valley Hunt Club for
a wine tasting and luncheon.
Sure enough, the 20 guests began arriving and what a parade we had! Pickup trucks and large SUVs pulled into the parking lot, complete with Horse Trailers! Loaded with Horses! It seems like our guests had been on a ride and were dropping by for lunch on the veranda. The Hunt Club members secured their trailers and opened the trailer windows and doors for air and so the horses could enjoy each other’s company! One pair, Windsor and Billie used to be stall mates and now grab every opportunity to catch up and spend some time together!
Lunch was served; Alsatian Onion Tarts, Baby Greens with Apples, Dried Cherries, and Pecans with a Maple Vinaigrette. For dessert? Somerset Ridge Pound Cake with Strawberries, Raspberries and Blackberries all drizzled with the vineyard’s Ambrosia Dessert Wine.

The veranda has the new screens now, there to block wind, rain and cooler temperatures. Of course they are clear so those enjoying the veranda can still see the beautiful view! Yep, Somerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery keeps getting better and better!
In the end, everyone had a great day. Just ask Windsor and Billie!
