Blue Danube: A Hungarian Wine Dinner - SOLD OUT

Eric Danch is an expert on these unique wines, and he's coming to dinner to share a few of his favorites. Please join us for a special evening of good food, good wine, and great storytelling.

Loire Valley, Part II: Chinon + Other Reds

Although the Loire Valley is better known for its white wines, the reds can be equally stunning. The Cabernet Franc from Chinon is unparalleled anywhere else except for Bourgueil, a nearby appellation, and other red grapes, especially Pinot Noir and Cot (Malbec), express themselves in ways that might be unrecognizable to many wine drinkers. Grolleau, Pineau D’Aunis and Gamay from the Loire are all the rage in Paris’s wine bars and are catching on in San Francisco as well.


Loire Valley, Part I: Sancerre + Other Whites - SOLD OUT

Pamela Busch believes that the Loire Valley boasts the A-Team of the world’s white wines. From the Nantais on the Atlantic coast to Sancerre just a couple of hours from Paris, it is home to a number of appellations that make the most complex and age worthy white wines. In addition to the well known wines such as Vouvray, Muscadet and of course, Sancerre, other appellations are making superb wines from Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Menu Pineau and Romorantin.


Tasting Seminar: Wines for our Indian Summer

What better way to welcome Indian Summer in San Francisco than with a toast? This two hour tasting and discussion, led by Vinny Eng, will explore a selection of thirst quenching wines. We'll taste for qualities like salinity and explore the breadth of textures wines can express. This will be a rosé heavy lineup!


Tasting Seminar: The New France

For centuries, France has been at the vanguard of winemaking and the 21st century is no exception. While many of the current trends started in the 1980's and 1990's, sustainable, organic, biodynamic and viticulture, integrated pest control, minimal intervention and other production techniques have taken French vineyards by storm. San Francisco Examiner wine columnist Pamela Busch will lead this tasting and discussion, along with a few special guests.
