Priory Courtyard Wine Tasting for May

Join us for our first Courtyard Wine Tasting on May 18, 2011 (Wednesday). We will be featuring wine host Lee Ann Sommerfeld who will showcase a variety of central California wines, including several by noted winemaker Joey Tensley, of Tensley Wines in Santa Barbara County. The wines we will be tasting are:

Tensley Camp 4 Vineyard Blanc 2010

Carina Cellars Viognier 2010

Tensley Santa Barbara Syrah 2009

Carina Cellars Clairvoyant 2007 (a red blend)

The wines are delightful and hand crafted. Lee Ann also has an interesting story to tell as she left her life in corporate America to fulfill a dream of starting her own wine distribution business. She knows her Tensley wines like the back of her hand.

Also joining us, from Boulder, CO, is Chris Laughrey, who will be providing entertainment. Chris played all five of our outdoor gigs in 2009, and we look forward to seeing him again after all this time.

After this Wednesday tasting, we are back to our usual third Thursdays for the rest of the Summer.

Tickets are $50 per person. As always, our chefs are offering four courses of scrumptious hors d'oeuvres paired with the wines. RSVP to Gene Lucente at if you are attending. Hope to see you on May 18!
