Note change of venue. Art People is right next to the Montgomery BART station and down from the Sutter Stockton garage.
We seek to offer an occasion for people to get together over new and different wine styles and flavors. Why nurse a glass of a single varietal or be limited to a flight of three wines at a wine bar when for the same amount of money you can enjoy a range of wines among walls of art?
Advance payment donation: $15 + fees [refunds given up to 5/30]; $20 at door; $25 non members
Or use WePAY with lower fees; you may already have a password with them to speed up payment.
Our unique approach is based on the premise that certain special wines have an appeal to a broad range of different palates which rarely please the refined tastes of the wine pros. We want to offer attendees--who represent a cross section of regular wine drinkers who buy wine to have with their dinner--the opportunity to decide on their preferences.
For those who wish, we hold a taste-off among a selection of wines, using a ballot to rate and rank the samples and picking the "Best of Show".
Also present will be several domestic wineries and importers to showcase their own versions of Italian style wines and discuss how they craft such vino.
The wines will be paired with some tasty nibbles,including gourmet rustica pizza with a variety of toppings
We will also raffle or auction off bottles of the featured wines to assist our non profit project PAIRINGS--pairing wine with philanthropy which among other causes has helped raise funds to help encourage young black girls to get excited about technology, support global cooa farmers, protect Bay quality, and aid the Japanese tsunami victims,
The change of date does NOT include an optional guided tour of the Golden Gate Bridge exhibit at the California Historical Society located down the block and starting at 6:00 p.m. We will reschedule a separate meetup for this.
