Several tastings this weekend at the new BevMo

I just got an email from BevMo informing me that their Santa Clara branch is moving from the location at the corner of Stevens Creek and Kiely to the strip mall at the corner of Winchester. They'll be in what used to be a branch of Good Guys; I bought my home theatre system there, many years ago.

They are having a big opening event this weekend (October 17th-19th), with tastings from several California wineries and breweries. On Friday, Brenda Murphy of Clos La Chance will be there from Noon-3PM and George Troquato of Cinnabar will be there from 3PM-6PM. On Sunday from 11AM-2PM Michael Sones will be representing Bargetto and Chaucer’s along with Richard Alfaro of Alfaro Family Vineyards and Rob Jensen of Testarossa Vineyards. From 2PM-5PM Mike Faul from Rabbit's Foot Meadery and Red Branch Cider Company, and Dane Stark from Page Mill Winery will be there.

Those are just the local wineries; there will also be representatives from various others, from Napa to Paso Robles. The full list is here.
