California Wines Road Trip 2013 Tasting Coupons and Deals
Just because you don’t live in California doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the best of the Golden State (and still stay true to your East Coast roots). On Monday, September 16 from 7 to 9 PM, California comes to you—or its wines do, at least—for a “Road Trip” wine tasting at the Astor Center, in celebration of California Wine Month. And BBE’s got your back with 30% off tickets. For just $28 (the regular price is $40), you’ll get access to wineries from nine California regions—more than 70 wines to sample just as if you were driving through the state. Start with Fiddlehead Cellars, a winery in Lompoc known for owner-winemaker Kathy Joseph’s attention to crisp Sauvignon Blanc and silky Pinot Noir, then make your way north to Tablas Creek in Paso Robles for a Rhone-style white. Pit stop in San Luis Obispo for a pour from Edna Valley Vineyards, where wines are nurtured under the extended growing seasons brought by Central Coast weather, and continue cruising to Napa for such esteemed wineries as Trefethen (known for its signature whites), Groth (a Cabernet specialist), and the Burgundy, France–inspired Marketta. And the wine isn’t the only thing you’ll indulge in. Tacos from nearby Empellón Taqueria pay homage to California’s fresh and light cuisine, while still bringing enough kick to soak up the night’s pours. Get your tickets now!
