Believe it or not, the final weekend in July is upon us. The weather should be just about perfect around here so get out there and enjoy it along with a nice glass of vino!

Saturday, July 31st

  • From 6:30pm – 10pm there will be a Napa vs. Sonoma Chardonnay shootout at Falcor Winery in Napa. For $10 per person you’ll be able to taste the wines blind and vote on your favorites. A panel of six judges will do the same–all in an attempt to determine which region produces the best Chardonnay. Sounds like a fun time! Call 707-291-9144 for full details
  • From 7pm – 9:30pm the crew over at Elizabeth Spencer will host its annual Oysters & Sauvignon Blanc party (yuuum!). For $40 per person ($25 per wine club member) you’ll be able to enjoy the 2009 Elizabeth Spencer Organic Sauvignon Blanc from Mendocino, as well as other “special” wines along with fresh oysters. Call 866-963-4762 for more information

Sunday, August 1st

  • From 12pm – 4pm Viader will host its Fall release party (can you believe we’re already talking about Fall?!?!) & Argentine BBQ. For $35 per person (free for wine club members) you’ll be able to enjoy Viader and “V” new releases along with Mariela and Alan Viader’s famous BBQ fare. Ring 707-963-3816 for all the details
