3rd Annual Clairemont Uncorked Wine Tasting Event

Now that there’s a bit of a chill in the air, doesn’t sipping wine and enjoying savory appetizers in a cozy room with friends and neighbors sound like a perfect way to spend a Friday evening?

The Clairemont community is invited to do just that at the 3rd Annual Clairemont Uncorked Wine Tasting Event on November 4th from 5 – 8pm.  Presented for all over 21 residents and businesspeople of Clairemont by the Clairemont Chamber of Commerce, this popular event exclusively features San Diego County wineries such as Hacienda de las Rosas, Rock Canyon Vineyards, La Serenissima Vineyards & Winery, Gloriosa Vineyards, Fallbrook Winery and San Pasqual Winery.

Hosting Clairemont Uncorked in their lovely banquet room for the second year is San Diego landmark, The Butcher Shop Steakhouse, at 5255 Kearny Villa Rd. Guests will enjoy tray-passed hors d'oeuvres prepared by the Butcher Shop’s renowned chefs as they learn the art of “swirl, sniff & sip” from winery staff.  Live harp and guitar music will add to the warm ambience, and some lucky guests will win door prizes too.

The $20 ticket includes five wine tastes, appetizers and desserts plus a commemorative wine glass to take home. Extra taste tickets and selected wines by the bottle will be available for purchase at the event along with wine gifts, gadgets and accessories. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the local community to socialize while discovering San Diego county wines and wineries.” says Mark Forsyth, Clairemont Chamber President.

After the event, The Butcher Shop is inviting Uncorked guests to stay for dinner (or come back another time) with a $10 off coupon valid until May 4, 2012 on two dinners (or a $5 off coupon on two lunches).

Make a full night of it by booking a room at the nearby Residence Inn Marriott at a special Uncorked rate.
