Conclusion: Yes, you truly CAN have a civilized lunch at Devil’s Pulpit Golf Association. The food, the wines, the service, and the venue were truly outstanding.  I get to travel the world and experience the best, and this too was up there with the very best.

MEMORABLE TWEETS:

 

not necessarily SB fan, but two really good ones over weekend, Staete Landt ’11 Marlborough & Viewpointe ’10 ‘Pointe Blanc’ LENS restrained.

 

 

many spellbinding wines yesterday, thanks  for summing ’em up…!

 

   enjoyed Viewpointe ’10 ‘Pointe Blanc’ Sauvignon Blanc, tropical, but restrained w/ no green / grass notes, round, ripe & fresh

 

 

   Chef, the menu was absolutely wonderful and worked spot on with the wines, thank YOU…!

 

   Terrabianca 2000 Il Fior Di Fino Rare as a white crow, Sherry yeast involved Tuscan unique dessert wine

 

    Bodegas Rubio 1893 Luis Felipe Licor 24% Al. ‘You can never get this’ Reverse Port.

 

fantastic lunch at Devil’s Pulpit in Caledon, thanking the great Andreas Rieder for organizing, fab food & unbelievable wines…!

 

   Guado Al Tasso ’07 Matarocchio Currants, tobacco, tomato, cardamom

 

   E. Guigal ’91 ‘La Moulin’ Côte-Rôtie Cranberry jam, Pomegranate, oyster shell, bacon fat, cashmere

 

when having wines like these for lunch, just say “love you, baby Jesus”…!
