Pork and Pinot

Every other year, we host a fundraiser for our kids' school called "Pork and Pinot." The school is a Spanish Immersion school here in Napa, and the proceeds from the event go to supporting arts education at the school. At the event, which was this past Saturday, we cooked a whole pig (this year, the wonderful folks from Oenotri volunteered to cook the pig), we make lots of yummy sides, served strawberry shortcake for dessert (thanks to ABC Bakery) and, of course, had LOTS of great wines.

Thanks to Tyler and Sam for cooking the pig
The funny thing is that we don't even make a Pinot, but several parents at the school are winemakers and are willing to donate....we just love the pairing of pork with Pinot (and it has a catchy name). A local country and western band donates and everyone has a great time dancing!

the final product
a fun time was had by all!
