Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards in Sonoma, California has a great response to their Glorious Bites Challenge for 2016. The purpose of the challenge is to discover the most glorious appetizer to pair with the winery’s Sonoma Brut sparkling wine. This year, they received 1,700 entries. Of all these entries, the top three were selected from each region based on originality, perceived taste appeal and perceived wine pairing with the Sonoma Brut.

During September 2016, these semi-finalists will compete in a series of cook-offs in different parts of the country. Wine enthusiasts and foodies can attend the semi-final cook-offs. These regional events will take place in:

Los Angeles, California      Friday, September 16th             Crafted Kitchen

Washington DC                   Thursday, September 22nd      Union Kitchen

Austin, Texas                       Saturday, September 24th        Sustainable Food Center

Those interested in attending these events may purchase tickets ($25 per person) on the Gloria Ferrer Glorious Bites website. There is a $5.00 discount for members of the Cuvée Club.

Kathy and I are going to attend the event in Washington DC. and look forward to an evening of wine, food and the competition.

The winners of these regional events will compete on Saturday, October 15th at Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards in Sonoma, California. The winner will receive $5,000.

The first year for the Glorious Bites Challenge was in 2015. Donna Wolfe, a librarian from Hamilton, New Jersey won the competition with her recipe “Fried Lobster & Goat Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms with Sweet Thai Chili Dipping Sauce.” Sounds delicious especially with the Sonoma Brut.
