When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine, that's Fortuna.
The Rotary Club of Fortuna has been pairing wine and art lovers with some of the best on the vine and canvas for more than two decades. The popular Art & Wine in the Park, a fundraiser for the club's community projects, has been crushing it for 26 years and this year is no exception. The event offers a taste of more than 20 wines — both local and other California varieties — to please the palate. Whether you like it dry or doux, there's a pour for you.
Head out to Rohner Park on Sunday, June 14 from noon to 4 p.m. to sip wine, listen to live music and browse the vibrant art market featuring more than 50 local crafters and artists. After you've perused the wares in the silent auction tent, spread out your picnic blanket, unfold a couple of lawn chairs and tip your glass as Twango Macallan serenades you. When it's time to sop up the syrah, there are pulled pork sandwiches for nibbling, oysters for slurping (keep it classy, this is a swanky affair) and other culinary delights. Entry to the event is free and $25 gets you a tasting glass.
Let the good times flow.
