Clif Family Winery of St. Helena at PLaYT THIS DINNER HAS BEEN POSTPONED FROM MARCH 26 TO MAY 21 DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS.

The wines for our March 26th dinner will be provided by Clif Family of Napa. Members Karen and Keith Kato, brought Clif Family to our attention. You see, one of the founders of Clif Family winery, Gary Erickson, is a former student of Keith’s. The Clif Family wine philosophy is “The best wines begin with careful viticulture. At Clif Family we keep a keen eye on our vineyards, ensuring their health and sustainability, and we make our wines with minimal intervention for a true expression of the grape’s character. Since we love to eat, we craft all of our wines to be food-friendly and enjoyable for all occasions.”

We will be returning to PLaYT Restaurant in Hayward for this event. Executive Chef Spike Williams has designed a special menu to pair PLaYT’s Southern specialties with the Clif Family wines.

McNab Ridge Winery at Buon Appetito

Due to Covid-19 Shelter In Place directives we must postpone our upcoming McNab Ridge Winery at Buon Appetito in Hayward from April 23rd until July 23rd.

If you just can’t wait that long for McNab Ridge wines, contact them as they are currently offering discounted shipping, so you can get a case of Colombard or a pallet of Pinotage.

If you can’t wait for great risotto, or ravioli, Buon Appetito is open for takeout service in Hayward. Owner & Executive Chef Martino Oviedo is looking forward to serving you.


At our July dinner, we present McNab Ridge Winery, and their Mendocino county grown wines at Buon Appetito in Hayward.

McNab Ridge Winery was featured twice in 2012, first at our May dinner that year, and a few months later as a stop on our Hop up to Hopland tour. Since then, though, we have not featured another winery that brought us a French Colombard or a Pinotage. If you are curious about these unusual varietals, or just want to taste Rich Parducci’s (yes he’s related to ‘those’ Parduccis) award winning Zinfandels and Petite Sirah, please be certain to make a reservation.

We will be returning to Buon Appetito Restaurant in Hayward for this event. Owner & Executive Chef Martino Oviedo will be has designed a menu combining new (to our group) dishes and proven favorites to pair with the McNab Ridge wines.
