Rounding out our Prosser tasting we made reservations at Wine O’Clock, the Bunnell Family Cellar Prosser Bar and Bistro.
To begin with we had the treat of a couple of reds, single varietal, Sangiovese and Primitivo as our server was intrigued by my crush experiences this year. They were lovely!
The flight of whites came with our cream spread and fruit plate. The food was delicious – well thought out and executed, but they would have been better paired with red wines rather than the suggested whites.
Trying to keep things simple we ordered a pizza to share with the red wines – lo and behold the ‘spicy’ sauce was seriously spicy! Alas, I couldn’t eat it, so I had to order something else and amend it to be sure it was going to be ok for me. Expedited, I was eating again in short order and this burger was wonderful!
For the sake of recognizing labels, I toured the small shop at the front of the restaurant and photographed some of the bottles on display.
The wines were good, the food was great and we met a couple from Utah that we ended up chatting with for an hour or so after finishing our meal. Wine has a way of opening conversations and this was an idyllic experience. My partner in wine had another opportunity to talk airplanes as this guy was a retired pilot, commercial. His wife and I discussed so many subjects, laughing and comparing notes that we would’ve been mistaken for old friends after the first few minutes. They expressed an interest in coming to Walla Walla on a future wine tasting trip, so we made sure they knew how to reach us before parting.
