Friday, May 1st we celebrated our annual Feast of St. Fidelis celebration on Red Mountain. Or as many of our wine club members know, this is our can’t be missed taco party!
Notice who is first in line for the tacos!
Sadly, we had already sold out of our favorite wine pairing with Eric’s famous tacos, our 2012 vintage of single varietal Malbec.
However, after careful tasting, (and perhaps a bit of re-tasting) Team Fidelitas felt confident that our line up of the 2011 Boushey Red and the 2012 Optu Red Mountain also paired beautifully.
As a special treat, Charlie poured hefty samples of our newly released 2010 Champoux Block One. This is our second vintage of this wine, which is a 100% varietal Cabernet Sauvignon all sourced from the Champoux Vineyard’s oldest block planted in 1972, known as their Block One. It was such a special treat to be able to sip on such a spectacular wine with some of our favorite long-time wine club members!
After a few bottles of wine, and a plate (or four!) of Eric’s amazing tacos, the infamous Red Mountain wind settled down and the evening treated us to a gorgeous sunset.
Thank you so much to Eric and his crew, Charlie, Team Fidelitas, and all of our wine club members who made this year’s Feast a great success!
