CHAMPAGNE — 11/29/07, 7-9 pm at CBC


Community Boating Center (CBC) will continue a series of wine tasting/contests with a Champagne varietal event on 11/29!

In celebration of a great CBC season and the holidays, we will host a very special tasting theme of Champagne. Of course, technically any Champagne-Style California or other regional sparkling wines are acceptable. The wine does not need to come from the Champagne region of France.

In addition, we will be featuring a sample of cheeses from Farmstead. Farmstead cheese buyer, Terrence Geary, will be helping us pre-select cheeses to present for the Champagne theme. Mmmmm. Cheese.

Note: Rule Change - Bring 2 bottles (vs. usual 3) for this event only!

Thank you to everyone who has made this series of events a great success! Look forward to seeing you there!
