The Very Swanky Kathryn Hall Release Party

Eleven years ago, last Saturday, September 13th, it was a scorching 104 degrees at Dominic's and my outdoor wedding.  Fast forward to 2014, it wasn't quite that hot, but close...in the 90's and we enjoyed every minute of both days.  This past Saturday we happily spent the afternoon of our wedding anniversary at the Kathryn Hall Release Party at Hall Wines in St. Helena.

They certainly know how to throw a party.

From grape stomping...





....to hanging out and sipping wine on these totally swanky inflatable love seats they had placed along the vast lawn area.




With the temperature being so warm, shade was a high priority.





Along with the wine and water, Colorescience powdered sunscreen was passed out to guests to help protect us from the UVA/UVB rays shining down on us.





Small bites were plentiful and these duck bites were a favorite of mine.... absolutely delicious...





We tasted more than a few bites in between sips...these tuna and cucumber rolls paired well with the Kathryn Hall Cab.




Mini pizzas are always a hit with me...





And then some refreshing chilled carrot soup hit the spot......





 ....before retreating to more shade.....




Before we headed out to our next destination we spent a little time in the barrel room within the circa 1895 barn.  Wonderfully refreshing and I SO want to host a party in this gorgeous barn! ....One day.




Thank you for the invitation, Hall Wines, to spend the afternoon sipping, tasting, eating and dancing with you!

Tickets can be purchased at EVENTBRITE for the 2015 party!!
