April: Drink Rosé
We would be foolish not to try our favorite grapes in all their beautiful variations. Too many times, wine lovers skip the rosé version of their favorite grapes simply because of the pink color. Try some new favorites.
May: Drink Tequila
What could be more fun than drinking tequila on Cinco de Mayo? Discover the styles, terms and histories of this incredible spirit from just across the border.

Besides apple pie and baseball, there is nothing more American than Bourbon! A devious Chopped-style bartender competition lets guests compete for top honors.
August: Drink Sake
Japan has a history of sake production going back 2000 years. You owe it to yourself to experience the difference between average, good and great sake.

Summer may draw to a close, but our grills are still burning! We all love to grill and there is nothing better with grilled meat than Malbec. Discover Argentine Malbec plus a few other jewels.

This time of year always reminds us of our proud beer drinking traditions. We are lucky that Southern California offers several fantastic craft breweries right in our back yard. Explore our local treasures.
November: Drink Thanksgiving Wine
It’s that time again… our tables are full of amazing things, but what should we drink with all of it? Try some classics and discover some new wines that will hopefully be a part of your Thanksgiving dinner for years to come. Drink Thanksgiving Wine.
