I'm a member of the Museum of Modern Art here in San Francisco, but every six months or so, I have even more of a reason to go visit. Next Wednesday, June 8th, the museum again plays host to Taste of New Zealand, a wine tasting of over 50 New Zealand wineries paired with hors dÂ¹oeuvres and the option of a special tasting of Sauvignon Blancs with a neverending supply of oysters courtesy of our local Hog Island Oyster company. The best thing about this event is that in addition to being about publicity for these winemakers, it's a fundraiser for charity.
Learn about the charity and purchase tickets to the event at the Taproot Foundation.
