My deadline for the next RW wine column is this Friday. My friend Kathy and I went to Maiden Rock Winery & Cidery and Villa Bellezza last weekend to taste Sparkling Cider and Sparkling Wine—the featured wine for the January/February edition. This is the best research project I have ever been given. Seriously.
This past weekend I took my husband to Four Daughters to research their Sparkling Cider and Sparkling Moscato. We decided to eat while we were there.
Brunch was wonderful! Yes, brunch. I was drinking/researching before noon. This hasn’t happened in years—the drinking before noon part. Many years. There were so many interesting items on the menu. The waitress said they change the menu everyday! How fun for a chef! Lots of creativity.
We ordered deviled eggs as an appetizer. They were delicious. There was a hint of horseradish in the filling! How clever to use a bit of the filling to anchor the eggs to the plate. The eggs were garnished with pickles.
My entrée was tasty! I ordered a salmon and feta frittata! It came with potatoes and wheat toast.
My hubby had a rib entrée with poached eggs on top. His also came with wheat toast and potatoes.
It was one of the best meal that I have eaten in quite some time. I spoke with the owner afterward and obtained a few quotes for the article and then we were on our way back home to cuddle with our two kitty cats!
There will be more details on the Sparkling Wines and Ciders in the next edition of Rochester Women.
