It's Five O'Clock Somewhere

I won’t be home this afternoon. I’ll be out drinking. And I’m not ashamed to admit it. Whole Foods in University Heights is hosting a Meet the Winemaker event today from 3-5 PM. Bonterra Vineyards’ assistant vintner Jeff Cichocki (originally from Ohio) will be on hand to chat about these organic wines from Sonoma, and I plan to be there. It’s an informal drop in type gathering, and two more are planned: Friday May 8 French winemaker Diane de Puymorin will be in the store representing Chateau d’or et de Gueles, and Saturday May 9 it’s all about Tuscan reds with Sebastiano Capponi of Villa Calcinaia. Cost for each is just 25 cents per pour. These offer a great opportunity to try new things and learn about how they are produced in a casual, unpretentious setting. More info here
