Hockey players have surprisingly good taste in wine. I mean no disrespect. Just figured they prefered cheap beer.
But anyway, the San Jose Sharks have a great event planned for Jan. 24, and all proceeds benefit the Sharks Foundation and their 201-2011 Grant Recipients. Last year, they raised $256,000 for 11 nonprofits in the Santa Clara County. Pretty impressive.
The Jan. 24 event could exceed that. They’ve got 14 wineries on tap, and they’re the upper crust if wine was pie. I’m talking Duckhorn, Far Niente, Schramsberg, Silver Oak, Miner, and Flora Springs. And you get to mingle with Sharks players and coaches while you swirl and sip.
Tickets are $225 a smack. Register online at the Sharks website. The event takes place at the Club Auto Sport, 521 Charcot Road, San Jose.
