Upcoming April Wine Events At
Wine Classes Held Every Friday Night Starting at 6:30 p.m.
Friday, April 5th
Join us for this months’ Wine-01 series, as we introduce you to the wonderful world of sparkling wine. This is your chance to drink bubbles from all over the world, and we’ll explain and educate you on their different flavors, aromas, mouth feels, and means of production. If you love the bubbles, you won’t want to miss this class.
$30.00 per person. Advanced reservations required.
Since we covered Spanish red wines last month, this month we’ll be focusing on white wines from Spain. Often considered the lesser wines of Iberia, Spanish whites are typically crisp, tart, and uber-refreshing, perfect for springtime and the scorching sun of the summer.
$25.00 per person. Advanced reservations required.
Ken Volk was the founder and original winemaker of the Wild Horse Winery in Paso Robles, which he sold in 2003 to head south to Santa Maria and start another wine label under his own name. He is also a member of our Mt. Rushmore of Forgotten Grapes due to his love and decades working with what he calls “heirloom” varietals. We’ll be joined in studio by Barbara Smith, National Sales Manager of Ken Volk Vineyards, who’ll be pouring six of Ken’s favorite Forgotten Grape wines, most of which are only available at their tasting room (and here at Chris Kern’s Forgotten Grapes).
$20.00 per person. Advanced reservations required.
Join us on this one-day wine tour of three great South County wineries that ring the Temecula valley but are as different from those wineries as night and day (or good and bad). We’ll be visiting and tasting at Roadrunner Ridge Winery in Rainbow, and Woodworth Vineyards and Boorman Vineyards, in De Luz. Plus lunch at the Callaway Winery, and Chris Kern are your designated driver!
$85.00 per person. Only 14 spaces available. Advanced reservations required.
Chef Whitney Simpson returns for another edition of the always-sold-out Forgotten Grapes Vegan Wine Dinner. This time, Whitney will be selecting fresh springtime produce from locally sourced gardens and producers and whipping the ingredients into five delectable gourmet vegan courses you’d never know don’t have meat in them. And as always, we’ll be pairing each course up with a very special and delicious vegan Forgotten Grape wine.
$65.00 per person. Advanced reservations required. Dinner to be held at the Riverside Medical Clinic, 7117 Brockton Avenue
