"Fatto da Donne" Wine Dinner


5-9 pm
Tuesday, March 8
with Samantha Sheehan of POE Wines


International Women's Day
is next Tuesday, and we're continuing our annual celebration of talented, hardworking women with our third woman winemaker's dinner.


Samantha Sheehan left a career in finance to found POE Wines in 2009. She was inspired by time spent in Burgundy, a region she describes as "....one of the most beautiful, soulful places in the world." The POE brand was created to show that California, too, has incredible and distinctive terroir, varying dramatically from one microclimate to the next. POE only produces single vineyard wines to showcase that distinction, and they pick only when the fruit is balanced and flavorful.

 

The Nitty Gritty
You'll have a wonderful 3-course dinner paired with 4 wines, and have the opportunity to meet and chat with Samantha.

Oya Organics Farm


Our "Sapore di Marzo" farm partner


In keeping with the International Women's Day theme, we have partnered with a female farmer, Marsha Habib, from Oya Organics for the upcoming "Taste of March" event. For the week of March 22-27, we will be featuring a new seasonal pizza with produce from Marsha's farm.


For more information about Kitchen Table Advisors and Sapore di Marzo, checkout our last newsletter.


Oya Organics is a young farming family, currently producing on 15 acres of certified organic land in Hollister, California.


The farmers, Marsha Sayuri Habib and Modesto Sanchez Cruz bring a youthful mix of agro-ecology and traditional knowledge to the farm. And they also collaborate with several other neighboring farmers who inspire and support each other with equipment and know-how.

Oya grows a little bit of everything: many varieties of tomatoes, peppers, corn, beans, squash, cucumbers, lettuces, leafy greens, root crops, herbs, flowers, melons, strawberries, and pasture raised hen eggs.


Marsha and her team distribute produce directly to the Bay Area community, so their produce gets to you at its peak. They have a small neighborhood CSA program with drop-off locations in Santa Clara and San Benito counties, or you can find them at the farmers' markets in Belmont, Berkeley and Morgan Hill.
