On April 15-16, one of Mill Valley’s iconic events, the 39th Annual Mill Valley Wine, Beer and Gourmet Food Tasting returns – with a delicious twist! Invite your friends to join you – indoors or out.
It’s back, it’s virtual, and as always it’s sponsored by Mill Valley Market with proceeds supporting the Mill Valley Chamber and Kiddo!, the Mill Valley Schools Community Foundation.
This year’s event features two at-home, one-hour tastings – one with ultra-premium wines, one with the latest craft beers and both with tasty specialty snacks. Each tasting is led by expert moderators and cutting-edge winemakers and brewers to make for an entertaining, educational and delicious event.
It gets even better: Each ticket buyer will receive a reusable tote with 2 bottles of fine wine or 7 cans of artisan beer and an array of delicious food bites.
Shareable-size totes full of goodies are available for pickup April 14 1-5 pm or April 15 from 1-4 pm at the Mill Valley Chamber office, 85 Throckmorton Ave.
