Rockwall Winery @ the Gray Loft Gallery

Rockwall Winery tasting

Only two words needed to describe it; warm & wonderful. On a beautifully sunny spring day, only as beautiful as it can get in Jingletown, Rockwall Winery poured a wine tasting for the Saturday open gallery of Gray Loft Gallery. Dick Winter did the pour and a more gracious man I have never met.

Jan Watten was the hostess for the afternoon, greeting the guests as they arrived; showing them the work, telling them about the aritsts and just making them feel at home.

Then Jan sent them to the wine bar where Dick was ready to serve them the excellent Zinfandel, the delicate rosé or the rich Chardonnay wines he'd brought for the tasting. Each of them a delight.

The pace was quiet but steady throughout the afternoon. It gave the artists who tended the gallery quality time to spend with the guests who came.
