While she waits for the apple-season tourist rush, Gotfredson is summoning her catering skills back into service, putting on a white-wine and appetizers event on July 22 (reservations required, see www.countrycellars.com). A red wine and chocolate pairing will follow on August 5, giving her another chance to work with her neighbors at King Leo's. The two have already managed one successful collaboration: "I offer the Mahogany Mountain Zinfandel Port in a King Leo's chocolate cup. That's kind of my niche, and it's been going well. Some people will sip and then take a bite, but a lot of guys just pop the whole thing in their mouths."
