Join us at Ren's place and bring your favorite bottle (or two) of California wine to share.  We will be viewing the movie Bottle Shock based on the true story of how the California wine industry beat the French at their own game in 1976 and enjoy some of our California favorites with other Milwaukee Wine Lovers!

 

Sacré bleu!

    For those of you that were involved in this conversation (no "hard and fast" rules for wine pairing), the sommelier at Sanford paired a 2009 Zinfandel, Seghesio, Sonoma with our grilled sturgeon (yes... a red with fish)!

    Wonderful! And thanks so much to Ren for opening his home to us and so generously sharing from his cellar (and the port was amazing too)!

    Thanks to all who shared their knowledge of wine last night and especially to Ren for hosting and being so generous in allowing us to sample his private cache.

    This event was excellent. We tried a number of great wines from California including one from a Winery in the movie and a few higher end wines from Paso Robles. This event is in my top five for sure.

    Hi Ren,
    So sorry for the last minute notice... I see that you might have room for one more? I mentioned your event to a friend over dinner last night and she just called to confirm that she would like to join us. Please let me know if that would be okay... she did snag a CA wine just in case you said yes!
