6:30 p.m - 8:00 p.m.

(A Virtual Event)

Sonoma County, California is hailed as one of the premier wine-making areas in the world. In this event, we will learn about the region’s distinctive terroir and intrinsic characteristics while tasting exemplars from Dry Creek Vineyard, a winery founded by MIT alumnus Dave Stare, SB 1962 and now run by his daughter, Kim Stare Wallace.

Dave and Kim together have nearly five decades of history in the wine business, from many pioneering “firsts” of 1972 to the present day where the second generation has taken the helm and brought the winery to new heights.

Over the course of the evening, Dave and Kim will lead us through a descriptive tasting of three of their signature wines, the 2020 Fume Blanc, 2019 Heritage Vines Zinfandel and 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon.
