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.
J Lohr Online Presentation
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.

J Lohr Tantalizing Virtual Wine Dinner
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.
