The Drink Menu: Planning For Potent Potables

Welcome to The Drink Menu, wherein we’ll take a break from our restaurant and food-related madness and focus on the subtleties and happenings of our other passion: alcohol.

It’s Friday, and that means one thing: The Drink Menu. Here’s a trio of upcoming (chronologically-organized!) wine-related events that are sure to fill up quickly so plan accordingly.

• Monday, April 23: Yield Wine Bar hosts a wine tasting led by French organic winemakers Catherine and Pierre Breton. Cabernet Franc wines from the trendy region of the Loire Valley will be featured. Snacks are included in the $40 fee.

• Wednesday, April 25: The first winemaker event of the year at Millennium takes place with the Bokisch Winemaker Dinner. Bokisch Vineyards is a family-run winery in Lodi that produces Spanish varietals; the Millennium kitchen will pair Bokisch wines with a five-course feast. Tickets are $75 per person.

• Monday, May 14: OK, it’s three weeks away, but Absinthe just announced the first Sonoma Coast Wine Tasting Event. It’s $48 per person and 15% of the proceeds go to Save the Bay. Saving the bay + supporting local wineries + lots of wine imbibed = a good sleep.
