This is a long video but I show up in the last third. Sabor Del Valle is an event we’ve done since it started and our favorite pouring event every year. I was happy to do the TV show. It aired last Sunday on NBC 11 in the Bay Area.
Friday night we poured wine at Sabor Del Valle for the second year in a row. We enjoyed this charity event last year and we were looking forward to doing it again this year. The event is at the San Jose History Park in Kelley Park and it was a beautiful evening. It just takes us 5 minutes or so to set up so Stefania got to go visit some of the other wineries:
There is really great food at this event and lots of seating which is very nice for a wine event. I really liked the fish empanadas.
There was also some really nice local art .
One of the highlights was this band that strolled through the park for the first hour of the event. Then there was more live music and dancing until well after sunset.
We had a great time again and look forward to doing this event again next year.
As most of you know we don’t do many events each year. We’ve completely stopped doing any commercial events except for Rock and Roll Wine in Las Vegas (more on that later this month). We do a few charity events. Our criteria is first that it’s a charity we believe in and want to support and second that it’s an event we’ll enjoy. Most that we do are to support the charities that are near and dear to personal friends.
Sabor Del Valle hits on all those counts. It is also a really great time. The food and music are fantastic and there are a number of small tequila makers there, which I really enjoyed sampling. It is also the largest gathering of Latino winemakers that I know of. Last year Mi Sueno and Ceja were too of the highlights for me to try.
This years event is Friday July 22nd at Kelly Park in San Jose. Start time is 6PM I believe.
