Even the most ardent and sophisticated red wine drinkers look for other options as the Summer weather turns consistently hotter. Local food and wine club Valley Vino is offering a tasting that features two great summer refreshment options: sparkling wine and craft / import beer. Valley Vino's "Discovery" tastings are dedicated to exploring new and exciting options for area wine and beer lovers and this time they are going way outside the box of the usual wine tasting experience.

Tasters will have the option of enjoying samples of five sparkling wines or five unique beers for only $20.

There is also a great menu of appetizers and entrees paired with the bubbly and beer for those who wish to enjoy as meal with their tasting.
