Far above the Yosemites, inland from what we traditionally think of as wine county (you know, Napa and Sonoma,) there lies a hidden wine country that we don’t often consider, and it’s a shame. The wines are delicious, the people are creative, and the prices are right: El Dorado real estate doesn’t cost what Napa real estate does. So this week, we’ll uncover four wineries in El Dorado and the Sierra Foothills, meet some of the people making those wines, and treat ourselves right. All you need to do to participate is call us up, and hand over $12.50 plus tax and tip, and you’ll walk away with wine samples and the keys to a zoom tasting that promises to be enlightening and motivational. Give us a call- the number is 326-9363- and we’ll set aside a set of samples for you- and we’ll see you on the screen on Saturday the 24th at 2 pm.
THE ZOOM TASTING BEGINS AT 2:00 PM ON SATURDAY, April 24th, AND THE MEETING NUMBER IS 828 1826 9082. THE PASSCODE is 082052.
