A toast to Delia Orduna, Director of Sales and Special Events at the Nevada City Winery, for the wine tasting program last week! Delia shared three award wining wines and the background on each one. The three wines presented were Chardonnay, Gewurtztraminer, and Zinfandel - all excellent choices. It was a most unusual program as well as very enjoyable! Thanks to Treasurer pP Ellen Davis for inviting her coworker to share with us in more ways than one....
