The Third Polo Wine Dinner

The third Polo Wine Dinner (PWD) of Twenty Fifteen took place during the WFU Homecoming weekend.  During that weekend, we swing-danced at the biannual President’s Ball, power-walked through downtown in the rain, strolled around in the blooming Reynolda Garden, and had high tea at Pat’s bungalow.  Chef B masterfully constructed the incredible menu using fantastic ingredients.  More friends came over for drinks and cheese after dinner.  I remember there were a lot of laughter and Kiera rising from the floor singing opera.  Gradually, everything became blurry.

I thought saying goodbye would get easier with age, but I have to admit how wrong I have been.  Until the next PWD, shall we open the Montepulciano Riserva 2012.
