It’s been a busy month. Let’s take a breather and enjoy the holiday season at one of the popular wine tastings at Whole Foods in El Segundo. Tonight the theme of wines will be Wines from Lodi.
Lodi is known for being the center of the wine production “Zinfandel capital of the world” The Lodi wine region lies in the northern portion of California’s Central Valley, which includes San Joaquin County. The eastern portions are within the Sacramento Valley, while its western parts touch on the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, with noticeably cooler conditions in that section. Lodi is known for its old vine Zinfandels, with quality production from other varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Lodi is home to nearly 80 wineries, hundreds of “Lodi” labeled wines, and approximately 100,000 acres of premium wine grapes.
The wine specialists for Whole Foods will select a fine selection of Zinfandels, red blends and more.
The cost is $10 for the wine tasting which includes the wines and small tapas. There are also a number of selections of tapas for purchase. We can buy hot and cold appetizers at one of their many food stations.
We will have a table reserved for our group. It is recommended that you arrive earlier than 5 PM. The wine tasting starts at 5 PM. Your seat will be given away if you do not arrive by 5:15 PM in case the Tapas Bar needs your chair. The wine tasting lasts till 7 PM with the Tapas Bar staying open until 8 PM. You might want to bring a sweater/jacket as it may get cool in Whole Foods as they have their air conditioners on.
This event is limited to 15, so sign up soon. If your plans change, please update your RSVP accordingly. We'll meet in the Tapas bar. Come and enjoy the holidays with us! See you there! Free parking too.
