San Diego: Sonoma in the City

Wine cheers the sad, revives the old, inspires the young, and makes weariness forget his toil. --Lord Byron

Want to get away? The chances are very good that you do, but getting there isn't always as that easy. There's the requesting [fighting with co-workers] for time off, the planning, and then there's the cost. But what if that place you've been wanting to see, taste and experience came to you? 

'Wait, uh--what?' You may be thinking, but you heard me right, the Sonoma County Vintners are coming to a city near you, this time it's San Diego, my home-town. They are bringing all those great wines you've heard so much about, right here. So whether you're sad, mad or just plain bad, this is the event that help you forget all your toils and tribulations, so don't delay get your tickets today. 

You won't need to board an airplane, or be patted down by the sometimes all too eager TSA agents. Nope none of that will be necessary, you just need to grab a pair tickets, yes I said 'pair' did you really want to go alone? Nah, didn't think so. So here's the link to order the tickets you'll need to get in on the all the action. 

How exciting right? I mean where will you have the opportunity to taste wines from 50 wineries in one shot. That means, that there is likely to be over 200 different wines, so whether Pinot Noir is your thing, or you like big-buttery Chardonnays there's something for everyone. 

Heck, in-between sips, slurps and maybe even the unintentional burp you could even learn a thing or two about the hows/whys that make Sonoma County one the perfect places to grow grapes and make wine. You could come away with some great insights about the Sonoma's Pacific coastline, fog patterns, why soil matters, microclimates and what AVA means to you and why they matter. 

Okay, this is part where you pay attention. Because this event is this coming Wednesday, the 5th. It starts at 5PM and ends at 8PM, taking place at the The Prado at Balboa Park, the address is 1549 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101. If you're worried about parking don't because according to the invite, there's free parking in all lots surrounding the venue. 

The price of admission is $70 per person and in my mind that is quite the grape-deal for all you'll be getting, you certainly couldn't fly to Sonoma and have this kind of access for anywhere near that price. 

Will there be something besides just wine to savor? Yes, of course what would a night of 'Sonoma in the City' be without a taste of the great cuisine to be found in Sonoma? You can count on a vast array of passed appetizers, artisan cheese, charcuterie and such. I hope to see you all there, if you see me feel free to stop and say hello. Until next folks remember life is short. So sit back, uncork a few bottles and relax, sip long and prosper cheers!
