Mon. Feb 8:  Olson Ogden @ Cal Wine Merchants (Marina)
2113 Chestnut St.
San Francisco, CA  94123

6:00pm-9:00pm – (price TBD)

This is another winery that I’ve been meaning to try out for a while, in part because they source one of their Syrah’s from Unti Vineyards (one of my favorites places to visit in Dry Creek Valley).  They also make two different Pinot Noirs – one from Sonoma Coast and one from the Russian River Valley.  For a review of their wines, see the recent piece in The Examiner.

Fri. Feb 12:  Food From the Heart @ Ferry Plaza (FiDi)
Ferry Plaza
The Embarcadero
San Francisco, CA

5:00pm-8:00pm – free; tastes of wine $4 (from Napa Valley Vinters)

Kick off valentine’s weekend with wine, food, and salsa & tango dancing.  come down to the Ferry Building for this event brought ot you by Napa Valley Vinters Association and Slow Food San Francisco.

Sat. Feb 13:  A Donkey and Goat Tasting (Berkeley)
2323 B 4th Street
Berkeley, CA 94710

noon – 5:00pm – Free

With the whole “buy local” movement gaining momentum, you could do a lot worse than supporting this upstart Berkeley winery.  The husband-wife team behind these wines studied winemaking in France after leaving their tech jobs back in 2001  Now, they bring their learning to the Bay Area, and in their production of Syrahs and other Rhône varietals .
