April's Food for Thought event at the California State Library will feature a screening of the 2008 indie film Bottle Shock, which tells the story of how, in 1976, Napa Valley wines scored a shocking victory over France's best varietals in a blind tasting with eight Parisian judges. The "Judgment of Paris," as it came to be known, vaulted California vintners and their wines to international prominence. Special guest Darrell Corti, of the legendary and beloved Corti Brothers store at 59th and Folsom, will join in a discussion after the film.
Food for Thought will take place on Wednesday, April 20 from 5:00 to 8:30 PM in the California History Room, Room 200, at the California State Library, 900 N Street, Sacramento. The doors open at 5 PM and the program begins one hour later with time for discussion afterwards. Metered street parking is free after 6 PM; 8th and O light rail access is close by. Seating in this venue is limited, so attendees must RSVP to Rebecca Ann Fontaine at 916-653-9942 or email@example.com.
