R2 Wine Luncheon Number 5

October 12, 2019

As always, the wine luncheon in LA was excellent. Great food, great company, and great wine. Our host Donnie did it again.

We dined at Lucques, and though we did not have a private room, we were well cared for and had plenty of room.

Donnie and I arrived in time for a cocktail before lunch got rolling.

Negroni components

The house made Negroni was, um, interesting. Infused vodka?! Overly sweet home made Campari. Sweet vermouth that was pretty sweet.

The food was excellent. Sadly, no pictures were snapped. The wine was plentiful as always.

As it turned out, a number of small French wineries were in the house looking for US distributors. After lunch, we joined them for a taste.

After an excellent Indian dinner, we decamped to Edison for a night cap. Good times.
