Market at Pavilions wine-tastings move to Wednesdays

Noted Sacramento gourmand David Berkley instituted Friday-night wine-tastings at his store in the Pavilions, oh, nearly a quarter-century ago.

When he sold David Berkley Fine Wines & Specialty Foods to Greg Rhategan in 2008, and it was renamed the Market at Pavilions, the end-of-the-work-week tradition continued.

Now there's a twist: The tasting has moved to Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., but the spirit will remain the same.

Tomorrow night's tasting is dubbed "Kobe Burgers & Bordeaux," at which grilled Kobe beef sliders will be paired with a flight of five reds from the Bordeaux region of France. The tasting fee is $10 ($5 is refunded with a wine purchase), the sliders are $3 apiece.

The Market is in the Pavilions center in Sacramento, along Fair Oaks Boulevard near Howe Avenue. Information: (916) 929-4422,
