Local Wine Festival | April 6-7, 2018

Fortunate for us, The Wine Shop III will once again host a Wine Festival including a dinner and tastings in early April.

The Festival will be held over two days, beginning on Friday, April 6th with an intimate wine dinner featuring Winemaker, Greg LaFollette.  Tickets will only be sold to 20 diners who will have the pleasure of discovering nuances in how food and wine interact, and along the way, picking up a little history, a little education, and possibly a few new friends. Greg’s presence promises to elevate the dinner from a mere night on the town to a display of heartfelt enthusiasm as you sip your way through Sonoma County.

If you’ve never attended a wine tasting, there are five basic steps in tasting wine: color, swirl, smell, taste, and savor. These are also known as the “five S” steps: see, swirl, sniff, sip, savor. This information will be useful on Saturday, April 7th as the wine tasting will represent 50+ wines at 4:00PM. For $25  this event is offering a “take home glass” and representatives from wineries will be on site to offer their insight and a sip of the available vintages.  Each year the shop offers all proceeds of the event’s silent auction to the Blessings program. Ticket prices increase to $35 at the door.

This event is sponsored by: Cedar Creek Assisted Living, Specialty Gems and Fat Daddy’s BBQ

You may purchase tickets to either event by calling 352-341-7707 or 352-794-3834. All checks should be payable to The Wine Shop III. Tickets to the dinner are $125 per person.
