1976 Paris Tasting Re-Creation

It’s back!! Since the original event in June sold out so quickly, and so many folks missed out, we’re staging an encore performance! In case you missed the last description, here’s a brief synopsis: we taste 9 wines blind, California vs. France, and rate our winners along a 20-point scale, just like they did in 1976 when the French judges chose California wines over French ones (as portrayed in the movie “Bottle Shock”). It’s great fun, the last one was a blast, and as always we’ll have some nibbles provided by Chef Alistair from Tap Restaurant.

Wednesday Sept 26 at 6:30pm
