We decided to go to The Wine Club (http://www.thewineclub.com/) for some wine tasting during our “Wine and Cheese” time this week. There was a little cheese there as a snack but we will just be discussing the wines for this entry. The Wine Club offers different tasting themes every Friday and Saturday; this week Spanish wines were being featured.
On Saturday night we arrived at Wine Riot with a plan of attack. There were around 40 different wineries represented from all over the world. We decided to visit the South African wines table first and then make our way through Europe, and finish out with the USA. This was a bit ambitious considering there were classes, a photo booth, temporary tattoos and don’t forget about our grilled cheese we had been dreaming about.
Saturday afternoon I headed over to the “Uncorked” event (https://ghirardellisquareuncorked.eventbrite.com/) to learn more California wines, rub some elbows and taste some local wine.
Friday night at The Bluxome Street Winery, Saturday at “Uncorked”, and Sunday night at The Pour House.
We decided to take our “first trip” out to some California wineries to celebrate our “first year” as a married couple. Some of the Livermore wineries were also celebrating Earth day with demonstrations and tours.
