The 24th Annual Great Sonoma Crab and Wine Fest
Yes, I want to attend this. Who wouldn’t? Crab, wine, and there are even some auctions to indulge in. I’ve never attended this event, but it’s on my list of events to attend. They even have a giant inflatable crab as part of their venue decorations!
Snooth and Kettle Chips’ Pre-Superbowl Party
San Francisco here I come. I’ll be pouring wine, cocktails, and spirits at 111 Minna Street Gallery on Thursday, January 31. This is a first-of-its kind event, and we’re all looking to have a blast, so let us know if you want to join us—it’s free! I’d love to meet our SF Snooth contingency, so spread the word and bring your friends!
People’s Voice Awards Grand Tasting
Since we’re on the subject of Snooth tasting events, we have a doozy coming up in March. We’ll be pouring winners and runners-up from Snooth’s 2012 Peoples Voice Wine Awards—wines from the likes of Chappellet, Catena, Jordan, Cantina Terlano, Trimback, and d’Arenberg, to name but a few! We’ll have a selection of fine foods as well, with a really special feature: pairing stations featuring the recipes of some of the finest restaurants in the Cayman Islands.
San Antonio Wine Festival
San Antonio Texas is overlooked as a travel destination, and that’s too bad in my book. There’s plenty to do there: Six Flags, a river that runs through the city, incredible barbecue—not to mention proximity to Texas wine country and the San Antonio Wine Festival. Who knew? A weekend of food and wine in, hopefully, sunny Texas! Yeah, I could go for that.
South Beach Food & Wine Festival
Now we’re cooking! Literally, as the average high temp in Miami in February is a balmy 77 degrees. This is as close to that Caribbean getaway as I’m likely to get this year. Food, wine, and endless fun under the Florida sun. Truth be told, this is more of a food festival than a wine festival, but a man’s got to eat, too!
