Wine and food experts will guide guests on a distinctive tour of wines, cheeses and chocolates from the early 1900’s. The event will showcase wines from the pioneer regions born in the early 1900’s; a time just before prohibition when the vineyards started to stretch throughout California.
While sampling these historic vineyard wines, guests can indulge in tasty pairings with artisan cheeses from the old continent, directly imported by Nicole’s Gourmet Food in South Pasadena, including cheeses such as Brillat-Savarin created in the 1930’s. Guests can also indulge in the sweeter side of things with Grand Cru chocolates from Valrhona; featuring some of the best cocoa plantations from around the world.
To top off this culinary tour, Venice-based Dustbowl Revival will be performing its funky mix of folk-blues orchestra music fused with old school gypsy rhythms and bluegrass.
