On Sunday July 22nd, DIG WINE SHOP in Dogpatch is hosting a tasting of Italian wines from importer Neal Rosenthal. The tasting will consist of seven wines, beginning with a sparkling from Liguria, and moving to whites, lighter reds, and fuller reds. Charcuterie from Fatted Calf and cheese from Cowgirl Creamery will be served as well, so you’ll stay sober enough to enjoy every glass. The tasting will be from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Tickets are $40 per person, and can be purchased by emailing. 1005 Minnesota St. at 22nd St., 415-648-6133.
