Leave a comment

Hope 2011 is treating everyone well so far.  Here are some events to make for a wine-filled start to the new year. [And remember to scroll down and enter our ZAP Zinfandel Festival Ticket Give-away!]


Tues. January 11: Hapa Ramen at Heart Wine Bar (Mission)

1270 Valencia
San Francisco, CA

5:00pm – 10:00pm

Now talk about an eclectic event:  Heart is opening up its kitchen to Hapa Ramen, bringing together the mobile food movement and old world wines.  Given the chilly weather recently, a hot bowl of sup and noodles, and a mason jar of Occhipinti Nero d’Avola sounds pretty good to me.


Sat. & Sun. January 15-16: Sonoma Winter Wineland (Sonoma)

Multiple Wineries
San Francisco, CA

11am – 4pm each day:  $55 for full weekend / $45 Sunday Only

Looking for a road trip next weekend?  Then make your way to Sonoma for the annual “Winter Wineland” when wineries throw open their doors to visitors w/ special food pairings, entertainment, art, educational displays, and booze-filled fun.  Check out the full program for more detailed info.

K&L Wine Merchants

Sun. January 16: Fête du Bourdeaux Wine Tasting  @ One Market (FiDi)

One Market Restaurant

OK, so this is clearly at a rather steep price point, but this is a ridiculous line up, including 2008s from Marbuzet, Ormes de Pez, Langoa-Barton, Lynch-Bages, Léoville-Barton and Blanc de Lynch-Bages; 1998 Lynch Bages, 1998 Montrose, 1998 Langoa Barton, 1988 Leoville Barton, 1988 Montrose, 1988 Lynch Bages and the 2006 Suduiraut.
