It happens @ Vinocruz, after hours. Farmgirls School of Food & Wine. And it is the vivacious brainchild of wine czarina Amanda Rehn and fromagista Tabitha Stroup.

The plan is simple and appealing. The duo will work you through the history, nuances, terroirist variations and highlights of wines of our own Santa Cruz Mountains AVA. They will do this while pairing all wine tastings with choice, and appropriate cheeses. You simply absorb all of this wisdom in the good company of fellow aficionadoes.

Starting today, May 4, the Farmgirls School of Food & Wine, convenes at Vinocruz every Wednesday in May, beginning at 6:30pm. Get in there right now and reserve your place. Here be the website.
