This evening will be all about camaraderie, relaxation, and enjoying good food, drink and hand-made goods. You’ll taste California sparkling wines and champagnes that Forage discovered on a fall trip to Sonoma and Napa, paired with appetizers that you can recreate for your own holiday parties.
The pairings are: Korbel Rouge Champagne + parmesan/rosemary wafers with a side of sun dried tomato jam and brie. Sparkling Moscato + lamb sausages with harissa and mint cream. Poema Cava + blue cheese gougères. Jam Cellars Toast Sparkling Wine + cinnamon sugar biscotti with a scoop of goat cheese/roasted cherry ice cream.
We invite you to grab a few friends and spend all or part of your Friday evening with us. The fireplace will be glowing, our Christmas tree will be decorated, and live music by our fave SusyO will help ease us into the weekend. The sparkling wines you taste will be available for purchase (with the exception of one, which is sold only at their California winery!), and you’ll all go home with the appetizer recipes and samples of spiced nuts made in our kitchen. Cost is $40 in advance and $50 at the door.
