Holiday Showdown: Premium wines of California VS France

Join us as we revisit the age old question: who produces better wine-- France or California? You decide! We have 2 wines for each category: Sparkling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet. Each wine is priced equivalently and we will be tasting blind, so no bias! Each wines' origin will be revealed after each comparative duo of wines. 

When: Sunday, December 6th, 5:30 PM

Purchase tickets here!

All wines are excellent examples of classical styles and could make for an excellent gift or be that special bottle you open with family over the holidays.

Wines will be accompanied by light pairings. Tasting led by wine director Jason McKechnie, Certified Sommelier. All wines available for 15% discount at the event.
