Over at Eating Our Words, we're ringing in the holidays in style...by hosting our very first event for you, our readers. We'll be at Sonoma Wine Bar
on December 19 from 6 to 11 p.m. for a holiday wine tasting
with so much more than just wine -- and we hope you will be, too.
For $45, you'll get to sample more than 40 different wines and cozy up to the giant fireplace while enjoying music from the Charlie Perez Trio and -- as the night winds up -- DJ Thomas Cauley. But more than just wine will be on hand: We'll also have beer, bubbly and plenty of gourmet nibbles to keep the party going all night long.
And if 40 different wines don't perk up your palate, you can step up your game and purchase a VIP ticket for an $85 Cellar Tasting. In addition to the regular wine tasting, you'll also have a private tasting of an assortment of Sonoma's exclusive Reserve List wines.
The standard $45 tickets can be purchased online
, but VIP tickets have to be purchased at Sonoma. Tickets will go fast, so grab yours now. We'll be there to raise a glass to you and help relieve the holiday stress with some red, red wine.
