J Lohr Tantalizing Virtual Wine Dinner

J Lohr Tantalizing Virtual Wine Dinner Forever sabbatical

J Lohr Vineyards & Wines was the wine host for this week’s virtual wine dinner. J Lohr is a California winery. We learned that they have over 3,700 acres of estate vineyards in Paso Robles, Monterey County, and the Napa Valley.

Pick-up Wines and Dinner

If you have not read our past virtual wine dinners from this summer check out Virtual Wine Dinner Chateau Ste Michelle and Chronic Cellars and Bread Butter Mouth Watering Virtual Wine Dinner.

To start the evening, we drove to pick up the wines that came in a nice reusable wine bag. At the same time picked up the To Go four-course foods. Then we headed back home to set up for an enjoyable evening of tastings and learning.

Once we arrive back home, we set up the table and the laptop for the guest speaker. The speaker would walk us through the four wines that were paired with the four-course meal. The restaurant representative also came on the computer and shared why the food was paired with the wines. Not sure if you notice but in the past virtual wine dinners they were three-course meals. This time we had a bonus entree.

Wow, such a delicious meal with mouth-watering wines. I appreciated the variety of types of foods that I would not take the time to create at home. Trying different flavors of wines helps us to find wines that we would like to have again in the future.  

Wither you are trying foods or wines, do you like variety within the meal?

  1. All of the food is well presented. Very appealing to the eye. Was the food warm when you sat down to eat?

    1. Great question. Yes, the food was still warm. We put the dessert in the refrigerator and then brought it out when the speaker discussed the dessert.

  2. What a fun event! I love these virtual dinners. I’ve seen a few advertised locally but we haven’t tried one yet – hopefully, they will keep doing them this winter!

  3. I am not much of a wine drinker, but I love the idea of a dinner and wine date with my sweetie, all prepared for us. That phyllo wrapped brie is making me hungry. lol.

  4. I need to find a virtual wine tasting tour close to our area. All your posts about this have been great reads and so many wonderful ideas for date nights and moms night in.

  5. These are so cool! I love how much thought goes into the details. I couldn’t eat the food though. I’d have to find something similar with vegan fare. Love the whole idea.
