Overlake Golf and Country Club Wine Dinner

On Saturday, July 11th, Jason and his wife Kirschten had the pleasure of hosting a dinner in the Tasting Room for ten guests from the Overlake Golf and Country Club in Medina, WA.

Guests began the evening in the rocking chairs in the breezeway with a canape crostini with Monteillet goat cheese and local rainier cherry relish.
