Last evening we enjoyed a wine maker's dinner with Darioush Khaledi at Central Bistro. We have visited the Darioush Winery on Silverado Trail in Napa twice, so we naturally joined some friends in making reservations for the wine maker's dinner when we received word that Darioush Khaledi was coming to Phoenix.
Mr. Khaledi is originally from Iran, and his winery is magnificent and incorporates many Persian themes in its architecture. His wines are outstanding, as was the dinner.
Mr. Khaledi took the seat next to my husband for dinner, and he was a gracious host. To illustrate the dinner, above is a cell phone photo of a portion of the wine room at Central Bistro, with several bottles of Darioush wines on the right.
This week we are showing some of the marine life in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
