Wine Club of SBR: February Wine Mixer and Movie

On Tuesday, Feb. 22, 80 wine club members gathered in the Sol Ballroom to enjoy the movie Bottle Shock and eat designer popcorn.

In the movie, Steven Spurrier, a sommelier in Paris, comes to the Napa Valley to take the best he can find to Paris for a blind taste test against French wine. Without a doubt, the task is much harder than he anticipated with several twists to the story.

While watching the movie, members enjoyed “Popped Popcorn Pairings,” which included:

• Lemon Poppy Seed—paired with chardonnay

• Sea Salt—paired with chardonnay, Pouilly Fuissé, or cabernet sauvignon

• Mesquite Smoked Cheddar—paired with cabernet sauvignon

• Truffle—paired with cabernet sauvignon

• Rosemary Salted Caramel—paired well with white wines and if you have a sweet tooth.

Save the date for our next wine tasting and education event on Tuesday, April 19. There will be a presentation and tasting about Argentine and Chilean wines.
