Wines of the World at Murphys Historic Hotel: “Sweets For Your Sweet”

Wines of the World at Murphys Historic Hotel: “Sweets For Your Sweet”


Hatcher Winery at Wines of the World

Brought to Murphys Historic Hotel by the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance, “Wines of the World” is a monthly, interactive wine seminar offering attendees a chance to experience and explore the world of wine — from wine tasting to grape growing, from varietal nuances to winemaking techniques.

This month, Gary Zucca of Zucca Wines will discuss the sweeter side of wine. This year’s Port offering marks Gary’s fifth consecutive year of providing “Sweets for your Sweet” for the California Winegrape Alliance — a Port and dessert wine pairing with chocolates, sweet morsels and cheeses — and it’s one of the most popular Wines of the World presentations every year.

The night will begin with cheese pairings and end with, of course, scrumptious sweets. Giving a taste of what’s in store, Gary explained, “We’ll be pairing white, milk, semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolates with a number of local dessert wines and Ports. Everyone knows that chocolate and Port go really well together, but there is so much more you can do with sweet pairings.”

Carrie Nelson, CWA administrator adds, “Life is too short to eat dessert last. We invite folks to treat that someone special to an early Valentine event, eat dessert first, and end the evening with dinner at the hotel and a $5 discount off each entrée.”

Cost is $20 for CWA members and $25 for non-members. For more information, call 209-728-9467 for more information.
