For a wine-filled evening during which you’ll also learn something new, check out the WINEspired Cooking Series at ~RAM’S GATE WINERY~ in Sonoma (just by the Sonoma Raceway, so it’s not too much of a drive from the city). Each class features a different wine from Ram’s Gate, which you’ll have the opportunity to taste and then create a meal to pair with it under the tutelage of chef Taylr Behnam. At the end of the class session, you get to sit down and enjoy the meal, along with wine pairings. Classes will take place on the following Fridays from 5:30pm-8pm: March 22nd, April 5th, and April 26th. The classes cost $100 per person, $90 for Ram’s Gate members. Reservations can be made by email or by calling 707-721-8700. 28700 Arnold Dr. at Mangel Ranch, Sonoma.
