The “Locals’ Season” is in full swing with restaurants all over town offering creative events.

Wine Gallery’s popular “Tasting Tuesday” has returned. Owner Chris Olsen initiated the every-other-week event prior to COVID and started them up again in September.

“I schedule them for every other Tuesday, and they’ve been selling out pretty much in advance every time,” Chris told me.

“About 40 or 50 people attend each event and I always have a representative from the featured wine maker. People love it; it’s a fun way to get a new perspective on great wines.”

Prices range between $30 and $40 per person, depending on whether five or six wines are featured. Wine Gallery doesn’t skimp on the tastes, either, with 2.5-ounce pours for each.

On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Stag’s Leap will be in play, followed by a Rombauer visit on Nov. 10th. Chris tells me that he’s booked Tasting Tuesdays the entire remainder of the year, so stay tuned to Wine Gallery and my own social platforms @bestoflagunabeach for ongoing announcements.
