Wine-tasting at Monticello benefits The Belfry

By From page A8 | March 30, 2012

The Belfry, the Lutheran Episcopal Campus Ministry at UC Davis, will host a wine-tasting event from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, 630 G St. in downtown Davis.

Ten wines will be sampled: five from local wineries and five similar wines from European wineries. Wine experts Michael Chandler, a sommelier, and Susan Leonardi, wine columnist for The Davis Enterprise, have selected the wines, and will be on hand to pour and talk about each one.

Local winemakers also will be there to feature their wines. Attendees then will 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. There also will be a silent auction, and the opportunity to purchase wine at the event.

Space is limited; to reserve a ticket, call (530) 756-1550 or email a request to [email protected]. Tickets are $75 each and all proceeds will benefit The Belfry.

The Belfry is a progressive Christian campus ministry at UCD, provided jointly by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Episcopal Church for more than 50 years. This fall, it will launch LEVN: the Lutheran Episcopal Volunteer Network, an Episcopal Service Corps program.
