April Wine Tasting | Bordeaux: Left v. Right Bank

In January we began our trip through France, starting in the South West and now working our way deeper into Bordeaux. This Thursday April 17th, we will continue our journey into Bordeaux, where we will explore the wines of the Left Bank, Right Bank and Entre-deux-mers.

Andrew Fidelman, formerly of Spruce, and myself, will guide you through this tasting at French inspired Aquitaine Wine Bistro located in San Francisco’s Financial District. What does that means for us? Luscious wine from the largest wine growing area in France.

There will be a surprise special Performance by lead singer Kyna Wise of funk band The Go Ahead. “The topping of this funk rock stew is a formidable force of female vocal fireworks equal parts Grace Slick, Mick Jagger and Gwen Stefani. When you mix all these elements it’s hard to imagine an ass they couldn’t get shaking.”- Ryan Brown, bay area comedian and musician.

Tickets available on Eventbrite for $40 and will not be available at the door.

January Wine Event | Wine Soirée 2014: Southwest France

Our next stop on the journey to wine enlightenment will take us to Southwest France. We will celebrate 2014 in style at Andrew Fidelman’s next endeavor – French inspired Aquitaine Wine Bistro, located in San Francisco’s Financial District. As you may know, Andrew opened and co-wrote the wine list at Spruce and has masterfully created the wine list at Blanc et Rouge, and now Aquitaine.

A quick fact you all might not know, Aquitaine is the home of Bordeaux. What does that means for us? Amazingly luscious, velvety wine. The evening will feature a selection of 4 representing the area of Southwest France.

Ticket includes full wine tasting and light hors d’oeuvres and will not be available for sale at the door. If you’ve joined us in the past, then you know this will be a ball.  Dress to impress.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite here.
