|Great wine deserves good food. Our monthly 20th anny dinner in June fit the bill. Yes, I said monthly. Roasted purple fingerling potatoes, grilled romaine salad and a dry-rubbed grilled pork chop were perfect with Domaine Divio 2012 Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir.|
We celebrate our anniversary as if it's a major holiday. We couldn't have predicted the circumstances of our start together--a later-in-life happenstance meeting, a thousand-mile move, and whether I'd survive breast cancer discovered weeks before our wedding.
Now 20 years later, we're still good, better together than apart. And I'm 20 years beyond cancer.
With that in mind and because I wanted to splurge on bottles of exquisite Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, I hatched a plan to celebrate our anniversary each month with a delicious dinner and a bottle of wine from a winery we'd visited. I'm a genius.
Flying Alaska Airlines nonstop from Austin made it easier. We were treated to free tastings all over the valley by showing our boarding pass. AND the airline flew our case home free. Yes, Alaska Air is now our favorite airline.
We only have a few bottles left but we've loved every monthly celebration. It's been our best year...yet.
