This evening I met with a few freinds at Whispering Vines at the Somersett Town Center for a glass of wine. I had been to whispering vines before, but only to grab a quick bottle of wine after attending a party.
Once seated we were quickly greeted by the friendly staff that showed us the different ‘flights’ (think tasting menu) of wines they were offering that evening as well as the different appetizer plates that they were offering. I went with the Pinot Noir and my friends went with the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot flights. They also brought out a cheese sampler and then later another plate with Salami, Cheese, figs and cheese.
All 3 glasses of wine I had were extremely good and went well with the appetizer samplers. The hostess did a great job of explaining the wines and made sure we knew what we were drinking.
What ties Roundabout Market into this is that one of the members of our party ordered a Barbequed chicken pizza from the market and we had it with our wine. I’ve eaten at the roundabout market several times but actually had no idea they did pizza. I was blown away - it was a nice, thin crust pizza, with tangy barbeque sauce and tender chicken with some carmelized onions. The combination of the wine and pizza was killer and I can totally see why Whispering Vines was busy this night.
Although for me, the location is the other side of town - it was worth the trip over there and it somewhat of a hidden gem in the Somersett community. Definitely give both stores a try!
