Outstanding in the Field

On a hot summer day recently, we went to dinner in a Napa Valley vineyard...

As you can probably tell, this is no ordinary picnic. This was a stellar event put together by the folks at Outstanding in the Field. They hold farm-to-table dinners at locations all across the country, for the purpose of reconnecting diners with the land and where their food comes from. A friend told me about OITF last year, and as the events sell out FAST I made sure to get tickets for my man and I this year. The 100% organic and biodynamic vineyards of Robert Sinskey lent a perfect setting to the event. RSV is one of my favorite winemakers, so I knew I had to get tickets to their event! Take a look at my photos from the event, you can see we had a fantastic time!

Tradition is you bring your own plate to dinner.

Langoustine, anyone?

Beautiful light as the sun set.
As darkness fell, it was time for dessert.
Happy as clams - it was a wonderful evening!
