Hi Wine Lover,
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How Does Our Website Work?

A: LocalWineEvents.com lists food, wine, beer and spirits events taking place near you. The event information is posted by event hosts in your area, including restaurants, retailers, wineries, brewpubs and festival organizers. They write the postings... and they run the events. Event hosts worldwide post 1000+ food/drink events on our site every week.

Q: There's An Event Near Me That Isn't In Your Listings. Why?

A: It means that the event host didn't post it. You can help us turn that around. Please mention LocalWineEvents.com to any event hosts you might know. You can also tell us about any "missing" events. We'll try to get them posted.

Q: What’s The Difference Between Our Website and The Juice?

A: The Juice -- what you're reading now -- is our event notification e-mail. Every food/drink event posted on our website also appears here in The Juice. However, for some cities, there's only enough room in our e-mail to list the events coming up in the next month. If you want to see ALL upcoming events for your area, use the link in The Juice that says: “Click Here For The Complete Calendar of Events.”

Q: Why Are Some Events Called 'Featured'?

A: It means that the event host paid a fee to have the event displayed prominently near the top of the page. Plus, featured events appear in every issue of The Juice, even if the event is more than a month away.

Corked wine and corkage fees
While out at dinner with some friends, I brought a bottle of nice wine (a $50 Howell Mountain cab from 2006, from one of my favorite small negociant producers) to enjoy while paying corkage.The waiter opened the wine, and... disaster! The wine was definitely corked -- it distinctly smelled of musty basement. So we ordered a $100 bottle from the wine list (a well-known "name brand" winery from Stag's Leap District from 2009), and enjoyed our meal. But, when the bill came... there was still a $25 corkage fee! I didn't want to make a scene, but now I wonder... should I have done so? Given the circumstances, the fee seems a bit over-the-top, after all, the only extra work the restaurant did regarding our wine service was open and sample the corked bottle (we used the same number of glasses, and the restaurant made their 75% markup over the retail price of the wine we did wind up drinking -- it runs around $60 retail here). What're your thoughts?

Accomplishments in Wine, Service, & Architecture at Ram's Gate Winery
By: Mike Meisner

Thirty minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge, another notable gate now lies at the entrance to California's beautiful Carneros wine region in Sonoma Valley. Ram's Gate Winery is a tastefully conceptualized dream-scape designed by veteran noted architectural firm Backen, Gilliam, and Kroeger. In the last 15 years, the powerhouse team led by FAIA member, Howard Backen, has laid the groundwork for over 40 elite residences, 35 wineries, 18 restaurants, 6 major resorts, and a line of retail stores. Each of Backen's designs are extremely detail oriented, and with four years passing before the project's completion, Ram's Gate is no exception. The tattered farmsteads previously strewn about old Carneros inspired Backen's uniquely Californian design. The general layout consists of two rustic barns connected by a relaxing courtyard pavilion. Each portion was designed to provide unobstructed valley views in the forefro...
