Looking for something to do this Thursday May 23rd? My family friends at ~MEZZALUNA RESTAURANT~ in El Granada are hosting an event that is near to my heart, a Serata Veneziana (Venetian night). The guest of honor is Lucio Gomiero, the owner of both Vignalta Vineyards (Veneto) and Royal Rose Radicchio Farms (Salinas), so the menu is going to be featuring a number of radicchio-based dishes paired with his wonderful wines. 6pm, $75 (includes gratuity). Reservations: 650-728-8108. 459 Prospect Way, El Granada.

Looking to taste some of the wines from the lesser-known wine region of Mendocino County? Look no further than the ~TASTE OF MENDOCINO~ wine event on Tuesday June 11th at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio. The event, which runs from 5pm-7pm, includes pours from lots of Mendocino County producers, including Navarro Vineyards, Edmeades, and Elke Vineyards. You can get a full list of participating wineries (plus some beers, coffee, and more) and tickets here. Tickets to the event are $25 in advance and $35 at the door. 5pm-7pm. 135 Fisher Loop at Sheridan.

And I have a feeling this ~18 REASONS~ class will sell out quickly, so I’m letting you know about it now: learn about palate development and how to taste wines with wine importer and expert Oliver McCrum in June. You’ll also learn how to identify flaws in wine. The class is on two Mondays: June 17th and 24th, 6:30pm-9pm. Tickets are $100 for 18 Reasons members; $120 for the general public (tickets are for both classes).
