Marialva Pop-up Portuguese Dinner
The Secret Wineshop
Sat, May 12

Many Portuguese dishes have bits of seafood, and conventional wisdom is that one should drink white wine with seafood. This time for the wine pairing, we are going to let you decide. We'll be having 1 red and 1 white with several of the dishes. Do you prefer white wine with your grilled sardines or red? Do you prefer red wine with sausage and potatoes or white? Our Portuguese menu is mostly sourced from local ingredients.

Pro Tip

"Street parking is free Mon-Sat after 6pm and all day Sun. Otherwise, the all-day $7 garage on 7th between Folsom & Howard is good and worry-free. "

Special Guest, Ron Silva, of Silvaspoons Vineyards and Alta Mesa Winery in Lodi.
