Another place on my list to cross off…but wait, I want to go again. Put the Book Bindery back on my list, please!
We started the evening with a different kind of “starter”. Sipping a flight of wine from the “wine next door”. And, we choose a bottle to enjoy with our meal. Then we moved into the glass encased room. Feels like summer is coming as the sun goes down during our dining adventure. And then we tasted a few more bottles from the wine next door – and switched our pairing for the night to a 2009 Syrah.
