Sorry for the continued event postings. What can I say? It’s spring and there are more wine events than flowers blooming. Plus, this one’s near and dear to my heart. So, deal.
Prima Vini’s Annual Women and Wine Dinner is tomorrow night, April 1, in Walnut Creek. I know, wine dinners are pricey these days (this one’s $110 before tax and gratuity, ouch) but the guests of honor read like a who’s who of California wine pioneers, and it’s rare that they’ll gather in the East Bay like this again: Heidi Barrett of La Sirena. Dr. Carole Meredith of Lagier-Meredith. Delia Viader of Viader. The list goes on.
I know, right? It’s not an April Fool’s joke. These women will really be there and yes, you can totally ask them if women actually do have superior palates . I know I have. I once tasted a wine in Lodi that tasted like butterscotch – literally – and called Dr. Meredith to have her ‘splain it. Turns out it was a mutt grape some grower found along a river out there. But she knew about it.
Get the scoop on the dinner, including that mouth-watering five-course menu by calling 925-935-7780 for tickets. Spots are still open.
