Cupcake Tasting in Palm Springs has a successful turnout.

On Saturday, April 14th, we did a wine and cupcake pairing at Desert Wines and Spirits.  Desert Wines does a weekly tasting and chooses 6 different wines based on the theme or supplier that they are focusing on. Yesterday we had three wines that went with our vanilla bean and strawberry cupcake and three that went with our espresso cupcake.


Costa,  from Desert Wines and Spirits had 6 wines on hand to taste that evening.

2008 Vinehill Winery Chardonnay, Clements Ridge Vineyard.

2009 Opolo Vineyards Viognier, Central Coast.

Grandial Rose’ Sparkline Wine, Languedoc, France

2010 Jean Orliac Le Loup dans la Bergerie, Vin de Pays, France

2008 Mankas Hills Vyds Cabernet Sauvignon, Contado Mankas, Suisun Val

2009 Opolo Vineyards Mountain Zinfandel, Paso Robles

All of these wines can be purchased at Desert Wines & Spirits. You can get on Costa’s email list to be updated on each tasting and what will be served. I hope to see you at our  next tasting at Savory Spice shop on El Paseo on May 3rd.
