DALLAS 2ND WEDNESDAY GROUP – FEBRUARY 2012 – Food from Galilee, Dallas, TX (2/1/2012)

The Dallas 2nd Wednesday Group got together on the first Wednesday of this month to help avoid the mad rush that is Valentine’s Day. We popped into a local Mediterranean food place for a little hummus, some gyros and a mixed bag of lower end wines such as base level Rieslings, Dolcettos, etc… I missed a few notes on wines like the double blind Beaujolais and Italian, the Tokay and another wine but here is a sampling of the wines for the evening.
