Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Lunch With Three Sisters

Written by Patti on July 27th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

A very special celebration is in the works and it involves my good friends at Three Sisters Vineyard & Winery. Last week I traveled up to Dahlonega with my fun friend Terri (you met Terri here) and we lunched with Doug & Sharon Paul. Chef Dairen was on hand to cater and discuss the event with us. Everything was lovely and I just adore being up in the north Georgia mountains – it’s all so serene. As an extra special treat, Sharon took Terri and I on a fabulous tour of some glorious spots on the property. I cannot wait until I can share the details of our upcoming evening with you!

But I can share the details of our lunch together.

A beautiful salad with homemade dressing started the meal.

All the ingredients for lunch were sourced locally. The veggies were super fresh.

Our main course was pasta with shrimp, tomatoes and squash. Delicious.

It’s fine to drink in the afternoon if you are at a winery. In fact, it would be considered rude not to imbibe. At least that’s what I told myself. And since I wasn’t driving, no problem! Thanks, Terri.

And there was dessert! A gorgeous berry parfait with berries that had been hand picked that morning. So yummy.

Between the eating and clinking of glasses, a lot of details were worked out. As we get closer, I will tell you everything.

And please don’t think that lunching at the winery is only for the bohemians and upper crust, it’s for everyone. Go on up and say hi to Doug, Sharon and Mittie (and Jess – hi Jess!) and lounge about the deck, drinking lovely wines and taking in the peaceful surroundings.  You deserve a fabulous day. Playing hookie from work would just make it better!

xoxo, Patti
