You know, it's not every day we make history with our votes. And it's not every day we make history with our wines. And well, I don't make wine, but luckily I know someone who does!
David and I had a brilliant idea over brunch back in December- a wine to toast Barack Obama's inauguration, called 'Yes We Cab!' Goofy, yes, but we thought it would be charming all the same. A quick call to our winemaker friend, Brendan Eliason at Periscope Cellars in Emeryville, CA and another to local artist friend J.B. Lowe and the idea is a reality!
If you're in the SF Bay Area, you can pick up your own bottle of Yes We Cab at the Periscope tasting room, at Solano Cellars in Albany and at both Vintage Berkeley locations (on College Avenue and Vine Street.) Special thanks to James Cardinell with Vinos Unico.
The fine folks at Periscope are hosting a screening of the inauguration, and will be showcasing Yes We Cab that night. Bottles will be available for purchase, so get one while you can! Get all the info on the event, here.
