Wine Dinner, Part 1

Last night Rosario Resort hosted Jed Steele, owner and winemaker of Steele and Shooting Star wineries. The event sold out with 30 local Orcas Island guests and the Rosario culinary team produced a wonderful evening of flavors!

Guests were greated at the door with Ahi, Smoked Salmon Parfait, Rock Shrimp-Dungeness Fritters and a glass of 2006 Shooting Star Aligote.

Rosario's Sommelier Julian Gonzales introduces Jed Steele.

Jed Steele discusses his wines, including the origins the name for his Steele “Stymie” 2003 Lake County Syrah, which is his father's winning race horse "Stymie."

Toasting a delightful evening with the Steele 2006 Pinot Blanc!
