As I’ve gotten older, and having spent nearly 20 years living in Northern California, I like to think I’ve developed a bit of a palate for wine. Then just when I think I can decipher good from bad, zin from cab, I discover what I guessed was a merlot was actually a corked pinot. So basically I still need all the help I can get. If you’re in similar shoes (platforms, I hope!), you might want to check out the 6th annual Uncorked! coming up on Saturday May 21 in Ghirardelli Square. Gilt City has VIP tickets available through the end of the day today for $75, which include an hour (between 1 and 2pm) of face time with Cellar360 wine experts, passed appetizers from McCormick & Kuleto’s locations/san-francisco-california/northpointst.aspx and Ana Mandara, and a VIP schwag bag.
If you’re cool with attending Uncorked with the hoi polloi, you can buy tickets for $50 here. (The regular event goes from 1 to 6pm) Bonus: You’ll be doing something good for the environment! Proceeds benefit Save The Bay, which works to protect and restore San Francisco Bay.
