In Memory of 2014 Passport To Dry Creek Valley

Passport 2014 is over but the memories live on.  What a great weekend we had with guests and friends coming from all over.   Our Tuscan Passport theme "Under the Forchini Sun" was challenged as we had thundershowers on Friday, overcast and cool on Saturday,  but on Sunday  the weather was mild and sunny.  We entertained 1100 guests over the 3 day event.  Chef Todd Muir's stuffed ricotta canoli was superb and his chocolate coated cream puffs were a delight.  Steve Albini's band had everyone tuned in especially when 2 walk on vocalists (Tony & Carlos) chipped in with Steve to do Italian pop classics.  Here's some pictures of what you missed.
