California accounts for close to 90% of all wine production in the USA and \, if it were a separate country\, it could be the 4th largest wine produc er in the world.&nbsp\;\n\nWe will explore the wonder that is wine\, learn a little of the history of wine production and how to taste wines by samp ling 6 different California wines with California type fare. We will also see how wines can help enhance or possibly overpower a meal and what to lo ok at when trying to pair wine with food. In each tasting we will sample 3 reds and 3 whites but the meals will vary.&nbsp\; In the first tasting we will have chicken taquitos\, salad\, chips and salsa and in the second ta sting we will sample wines while eating pizza\, a typical American staple\ , and salad. Must be over 21.&nbsp\;\n\nIf you are ready to explore and ex periment with both wine and food\, then this is the tasting series for you .&nbsp\;\n\n<strong>DATES:&nbsp\;</strong><strong>\n</strong><strong>Frida y\, July 8&nbsp\;\n6:30-8:30 PM&nbsp\;\n</strong>Cali wines with Pizza and salad (RSVP by Wednesday\, June 29)&nbsp\;\n\n<strong>COST:&nbsp\;\n</str ong>\n<strong>$20&nbsp\;</strong>per tasting or&nbsp\;<strong>$35&nbsp\;</ strong>for both sessions (JASC members)&nbsp\;\n<strong>$25&nbsp\;</strong >per tasting or&nbsp\;<strong>$45&nbsp\;</strong>for both sessions (Non-me mbers)&nbsp\;\n\nMinimum 7 attendees.
