California's Unsung Cheeses and Wines


With its trophy cabernets and castle wineries, Napa draws more tourists than Bi-Rite Creamery's lines on a summer’s day. Down a winding road (or two) is Sonoma and Marin - home to the legendary creameries that put our state on the dairy map. Past the shiny surfaces of these celebrated regions, bottles, and wheels, you’ll find a California that, while less glittery, is packed with gems that make wine and cheese geeks swoon.

Beer and Charcuterie Tasting Seminar

Indulge your inner carnivore this Father's Day...and indulge your love of Californian craft beer while you're at it! We'll pair American artisan charcuterie from around with country to some of California's best craft beer. We'll discuss what works, and what doesn't, so you'll be prepared to feature a well matched selection of beers and meats at your next party!
Fennel Pork Pate (Maker's Common)
Pork Rillettes (Fatted Calf)
Mortadella (Creminelli Fine Meats) 
Prosciutto Americano (La Quercia)

Sake and Oyster Tasting Seminar

The Japanese have a saying that sake never fights with food. To this assertion, John Lee and Todd Eng will show you how to pair a variety of sakes with one of our favorite bivalves: the delicious oyster. Never mind that most oyster joints present a lengthy white wine list to their customers; we will demystify any thought that sake can't stand its ground against wine, and that perhaps sake is a more ideal partner for your next oyster outing. John and Todd are also happy to answer any general sake questions you may have.
