Sunday, February 8th, is Waitangi Day Tasting at South Food & Wine Bar in San Francisco.
Since February 6th is the anniversary of the treaty of Waitangi, where the Maoris and the Brits agreed to British rule and create “New” Zealand. Why it’s a British colony is slightly amusing, since “Zeeland” is Dutch for lands by the sea. Oh well! While there is clearly controversy over occupied lands, much like our Native American history, we can celebrate this day for giving us the lovly wines of New Zealand. As such, The Jug Shop, my favorite Down Under importer here in SF has teamed up with South Food & Wine Bar, to present an afternoon of New Zealand New Releases, paired with delectable treats like the cheeses of New Zealand.
The soiree is from 2pm to 4pm, Sunday, February 8th at South, which is south of Market, and costs the mere sum of $30. I know what you’re thinking. It’s a recession! That’s too much! Trust me on this – if you have never been to a tasting at South, it is well worth the cost of admission. The quality of the food pairings and the amount and quality of the wines poured are worth more than the cost of admission, and the fun you will have with me, The Jug Shop, and the Kiwi producers is unmatched.
Hope to see you there!
