A Taste of Solstice
December 21, 7:00
A warm winter solstice evening of wine, food, and live music. Umbriaso winemaker Dennis Hayes will lead us through tastings of his wines with complimentary food pairings while you enjoy the solstice-inspired acoustic music of:
- Unwound (Pete and Gloria Pivonka)
- Pete Honzik
- Dennis Hayes (original instrumentals in the style of Clive Carroll, who Dennis has opened for and accompanied)
Admission includes all wine samples and food pairings. Wines also sold by the glass. Umbriaso makes wine on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay, sourcing grapes from family growers in Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma) and Green Valley (a Solano AVA adjacent to Napa's Stag's Leap district). Dennis crafts fine, affordable wines in small batches from New World grapes using Old World techniques.
Home For Christmas
December 22, 7:30, December 23, 2:00
Back by Popular Demand! A heart-warming Holiday treat by the creator of The Accidental Hero, Patrick Dewane, this show features rare film footage and Christmas carols from 1944. You know and love the music of this time, and you will be surprised by the funny and poignant humanity of a few who found miracles far from home. It’s Christmastime, 1944 and over 11 million Americans are stationed all over the globe in World War Two. Our country is united in a fight for freedom, and the hope that those overseas would be home for Christmas.
