City Winery

Chardonnay seminar and tasting at City Winery
The best way to learn about wine is to drink it, so get educated May 22 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., when you'll try four versions of the varietal from California's Wente Vineyards while learning the terminology used to differentiate them. The $40 tickets include a red wine tasting after the lesson and appetizers throughout the evening.
