Wednesday night we held an Open House at Priam Vineyards in Colchester to introduce people in the industry to Connecticut's newest venue to host events. Together with some of our friends in the industry we collaborated with their talents to host an incredible evening on one of the last evenings of summer.
Linda Sample and her crew from A Thyme to Cook, wowed the guests with their creative presentation and designed a menu that was not only visually interesting but absolutely delicious! Incorporating seasonal ingredients and wines from Priam, the menu was a perfect fit. It is hard to pick a favorite but I have to say the pretzel balls and varieties of dipping mustard were amazing! They set up a small grill that toasted the pretzels to perfection. What a great idea for a party!
Jim Markow of Mystic Oyster provided Oysters that are grown locally, and were some of the best Oysters I have ever had. They were the perfect accent to Priam's wines. And that isn't all, Cato Corner, a dairy farm up the street from the winery had the most incredible collection of artisanal cheeses to sample.
Yumiko of Hana Floral Design accented the space with gorgeous flowers, Ryan Designs created the perfect lounge area in the tent on the upper lawn for guests to sit as we listened to an acoustic guitar performance by Vince Thompson. And Erica of Adeline and Grace and Denise of Photokinetic Photography captured the event for us behind the lens.
I am so excited about this new venue! Thank you to everyone that participated and that attended it was great to see so many friends in the industry.
