Our caterer turned us on to an organic vineyard in Redwood Valley, CA, that uses ladybugs to keep pests away, producing a lovely LadyBug Red table wine that many of our evening party guests enjoyed.

Our Kosher red for the synagogue kiddush was Ramon Cardova “Rioja,” a product of Spain.

We did serve some 48 small bottles of Coca-Cola, but that was it! Not enough for any refills or repeats! After that, kids had to switch to “Shirley Temples” made from an “Authentic Grenadine” that contained pomegranate juice concentrate and no Red Dye #40!

No one–not even our bar mitzvah boy–noticed or complained!
