Free Wine Tasting!
May 26, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Don’t miss our free weekly wine tasting in the Healthy Living Wine Shop, every Friday from 3pm-6pm! In honor of the anniversary of the Judgement of Paris, this week we’re hosting our own version featuring California wines vs. French wines!
“It was the tasting that revolutionized the wine world… the crème de la crème of the French wine establishment sat in judgment for a blind tasting that pitted some of the finest wines in France against unknown California bottles. Only one journalist bothered to show up — the outcome was considered a foregone conclusion.
“Obviously, the French wines were going to win,” says George Taber, who was then a correspondent for Time magazine in Paris. He says everyone thought “it’s going to be a nonstory.”
Taber did attend, as a favor to the organizers. And he ended up getting the biggest story of his career: To everyone’s amazement, the California wines — red and white — beat out their French competitors.” -www.npr.org
