Friday Night Wine Tasting

One of my favorite local shops is Book Larder in Fremont and when I saw they had a wine tasting event planned I snapped up tickets for me & BK, especially since it was being hosted at a little shop I’ve been meaning to stop into forever, Picnic.

The headliner for the evening was Jon Bonne, promoting his book, “The New California Wine” – the folks from Picnic laid out some yummy snacks featuring northern california products and Acme wines supplied of flight of five Sonoma area wines for tasting:

I think the Kutch Pinot Noir was my fave for the evening, but we settled on a Shebang to bring home – though I was very tempted to buy the whole flight!  Picnic is defintiely a spot I’ll return to – lots of local products & good wine selection, with fun options by the glass:

and these seem like a fun item for cocktail night:

All in all good way to kick off Friday night – and I can’t wait for a return trip to Sonoma!
