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.

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.

Tasting Seminar: Sweet Wine and Savory Food Pairing

Most sweet wines are found at the end of a wine list -- or distributed on a separate menu -- only to be seen after we’ve eaten everything except dessert. What a shame! Sweet wines with sweet dessert is often not the ideal pairing; in fact, contrast is the better way to enjoy both the drink and the food!
