The French Room to Host Whitcraft Wine Dinner

Oh, ho, ho, it's magic.

[Hello, I originally read the name of this winery as Witchcraft, and wrote the following post as such. I believe it still gets the point across while adding a little zhoosh. Thank you for understanding. Have a nice day.]

Spoiler: this is not an opportunity to learn how to hex your ex. (But here’s a book if you’re so inclined.)

In this case, “witchcraft” is the name of a winery. [OK, it’s totally not.] But you know what? Wine is neat. It’s kind of like magic. Sure, it won’t transform a past lover into a wart on the bottom of André the Giant’s big toe. But it can make you feel cheerful—euphoric, even. It makes your broken Spanish, or French, or whatever you were forced to learn in school better. And most importantly, it makes you a really good dancer (even if only in your own eyes).

M-A-G-I-C.

The French Room is hosting Drake Whitcraft, of Whitcraft Wines, for a tasting dinner on Thursday, April 4.

Some facts: Whitcraft Wines is based out of Santa Barbara, California. It was founded in 1985 by Drake’s parents and he took over in 2008. The winery is known for its signature Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah varietals. Here’s a website, which you can visit to learn more.
