As the modern day professionals, we are all looking for experiences that can enhance our senses, emotions, and happiness beyong everyday work. We are longing for the trips that can bring us close to nature, farms, and earth. However, many times it is challenging to find the right time to take a day to travel away from the city – appointments, family commitments, someone’s birthday party, or simply being tired. My friend Peter Dworkin and Michelle Fitzgerald thought about this a lot, and have a solution for you: why not recreating those moments, experiences and emotions in the city? Taste West helps you discover handcrafted West Coast wines and feel the charm of wine country right here in San Francisco.
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate to participate the Taste Dry Creek Valley event at the gorgeous Presidio Golf Clubhouse. The event not only presented 6 boutique wineries from Dry Creek Valley, a wine growing region in the Northern Sonama County in California, but also brought in Jennifer Bishop, the Lead Sommelier from Farmhouse Inn. Infused with music, laughter, and food, the night opened up a window to explore the flavors and the valley’s pristine beauty.
Check out Taste the Sierra Foothills event on June 1st here. Discover, sip and share with pours from Baiocchi Wines, Frog’s Tooth, Vino Noceto, and Yorba Wines.
