On Saturday March 23rd, don’t miss WINeFare (an acronym for Women in Natural Wine) presented by Pamela Busch of The Vinguard—it’s the first and only wine tasting exclusively featuring women who work with natural wine. Winemakers and importers are coming from France, Italy, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and, of course, California. Denyse Louis, one of the founders of Louis Dressner Selections, the first importer of natural wine in the United States, is the guest of honor.
Tickets are $50, or $35 for educators, students, and wine industry folks (21+). (All proceeds from ticket sales are benefiting the Mary Elizabeth Inn, a San Francisco organization that provides housing and services to women in need.) 2pm-5pm. The Great Northern, 119 Utah St. at Alameda.
If you happen to live or work near Rincon Hill, you’ll be happy to know about NOMMO, a new bar from Jon Santer (Prizefighter), with hearty snacks, cocktails, and charcuterie from Bar Agricole’s in-house butcher, with plenty of seating (100). I’d been hearing rumblings about it for a while, and now the word is out and the doors are open. Read more in this piece from Eater. Open daily 4pm-12am. 396 Harrison St. at Fremont.
