#OliveandVine1 Olive & Vine Restaurant in Glen Ellen! #Winestyr



After our visit to Kamen Vineyards, we had no time to change for the next stop, which was Olive & Vine Restaurant in the little town of Glen Ellen, California. We've eaten there many times, but never with Dan and Linda, our friends from North Carolina. Linda is a food blogger and will be writing about her visit to this restaurant from her perspective.

I wanted to share the wine we had that evening (after drinking all day)! For appetizers we had a  2011 Graef Viognier ($24) from Solano County in Napa Valley. It has a beautiful bouquet of stone fruit, big floral notes, and a crisp, clean and dry finish.


For our main courses, we had a 2007 Loma Del Sol Sonoma Mountain Red ($48) right from Glen Ellen. This very nice red wine is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, 13% Merlot and 5% Syrah.



Thank you John and Catherine for a delicious dining experience as always. It never disappoints!
