1994 - 2014
Celebrating 20 years of
Wine and Food Appreciation
As we embark on this special anniversary year, we are making two very special offers.
1) Bring a friend to a dinner event and they pay what you pay. In other words, your guests come for $20 off (assuming you are bring a couple and within early-bird time frame).
2) New members or re-invigorated old members (who have not been in Tasters Guild for over two years) get 20%off Membership prices (that's $9).
We are celebrating, and everyone knows, the more the merrier.
Starting with the April dinner, we will be bringing in past favorites. Our favorite red wine variety is Zinfandel, and John’s favorite white wine variety is Roussanne, so for April we are bringing back a winery that excels at both Zinfandel and Roussanne, to wit; Sierra Vista Winery. By coming down from their Pleasant Valley, El Dorado county home for the dinner owners/winemakers John and Barbara Macready of Sierra Vista becomes only the third winery to be featured at three Diablo Tasters Guild Dinners*.
To go along with our revisiting old friend theme, we are having the dinner in a familiar place, albeit the names have changed. Acqua é Farina is in the same locale as Rue de Main, where we held ten Tasters Guild dinners over a seven year period. The Marquez brothers have created a special Italian “ristorante” that was recommended to us by Joe and Ann Farias, Carol & Jerry Rose and Duane Sitter & Cindy Sorenson. Chef Roberto Marquez’ menu is attached. Oh, and to answer your question, yes, they still have the fabulous murals inside, but the signs have been changed from French to Italian.
