Help the Victims of the Napa/Sonoma Earthquake


 

On August 24th Napa was hit with a 6.0 earthquake devastating the local community and the wine industry. Damages are estimated to range from $500 million up to $4 billion. More than 100 wineries have reported earthquake damage. You can make donations at RedCross.org or text "Red Cross" to 90999 to donate $10. If you'd like to specifically designate the money for earthquake relief for Napa and Vallejo, send a check to the American Red Cross of Napa County at 1790 Third St., Napa, CA 94559, and write "Disaster Relief Napa and Vallejo" on the bottom of the check.

Does wine pair with vegetarian food? If so, what type? White or red? Let’s find out! Kevin Trevino from Dionysus Imports will join us to share the wines from Brooks; an Oregon winery featured in the documentary "American Wine Story". We think the Brooks selection of whites and pinot noirs will be the perfect match for the vegetarian menu.

Rochester: Members' Choice: Celebrity Wines

Our annual Members Choice event is Tuesday, September 9th and this year’s theme is “Celebrity Wines”. There are many reasons why celebrities gravitate to the world of wine. Some celebrities come from a family with a long history of winemaking. Some have been lifelong wine enthusiasts and enter the wine industry in order to do something that they enjoy. Others like the challenge of a new enterprise and some celebrities enter the wine industry simply because they can. Our stellar line-up of presenters who will be ready to share tidbits and trivia about celebrities and the wines they make or represent. Come join us at Penfield Country Club for a fun, star-studded evening with celebrity wine and food pairings.
