Wine-tasting benefits The Belfry

The Belfry — the Lutheran Episcopal Campus Ministry to UC Davis — will host a wine-tasting event on Sunday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Monticello, 630 G St.

Five wines from local wineries — Capay Valley Winery, Putah Creek Winery, Marr Cellars, Simas Family Winery and Rominger West Winery — will be compared with five similar European wines.

Wine expert Susan Leonardi, wine columnist for The Davis Enterprise, has carefully selected the wines, and will be on hand to pour and talk about each one. Local winemakers will also be there to feature their wines. Attendees will then be able to vote on their favorites and, in the process, enter to win a raffle prize.

Appetizers by Monticello will be provided, and a quartet from the Camellia Symphony Orchestra will perform live music. There will also be a silent auction, and the opportunity to purchase wine at the event.

Space is limited. Reserve tickets by calling (530) 756-1550, emailing [email protected] or online at thebelfry.org. Tickets are $75 each and all proceeds will benefit The Belfry.

The Belfry is a progressive Christian campus ministry to UC Davis, provided jointly by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Episcopal Church for more than 50 years.

This fall, The Belfry will launch the Lutheran Episcopal Volunteer Network, an Episcopal service corps program. To learn more about The Belfry, visit thebelfry.org or facebook.com/thebelfry. To learn more about LEVN, visit levn.org or facebook.com/levn.transform.
