Strawberry Watermelon Soup paired with Messina Hof, Sophia Marie Rosé 2013

While at Messina Hof’s Gala Dinner at the end of  harvest we enjoyed a four course dinner with Paul and Merrill, Melba Allen (The Wine Profilers,) Allison Markin (All She Wrote) and Tom Plant (WINEormous.) Many other wine enthusiasts were enjoying the dinner. Merrill provided us with the recipe for the second course, a yummy cold soup with seasonal fruits. The Strawberry/Watermelon Soup was paired with Messina Hof, Sophia Marie Rosé 2013

Below is the recipe for Strawberry/Watermelon Soup. It appears to be an easy recipe to make and would make a wonderful cold soup for a hot day.
