Dear Friends of The Picnic Guild,
My goodness, summer went by in a hurry this year! It was a busy one for us. We made a lot of new friends from our antipasti table in Los Gatos' Jazz in the Plazz VIP Area, and heard some great music too. And now the farmer's markets are brimming with produce, the wineries are crushing, and it's time for you to plan an outing to one or more of our Picnic Guild Member locations. Savor the glorious fall colors -- they don't last long! -- order an elegant picnic from us, and make a day of it. This time of year, I'm always reminded of how lucky we are to live in this glorious region, where even as it cools, we have beautiful warm days and so much gorgeous scenery around us. Don't miss it!
Upcoming Events: Los Gatos Wine Walk and Regale Winery Tasting
We will be offering antipasti tastings at the Los Gatos Wine Walk, coming up Saturday September 29, 1:30-5:30 pm. Many merchants, wineries and restaurants will be offering samplings of their fine products, and they usually sell out. The Picnic Guild table will be on the Old Town Patio, along with many fine wineries. Tickets are $40 in advance, $50 day of the event. www.losgatoschamber.com
We'll also be offering tastings at Regale Winery on October 7, noon to 4:30 pm. We'll have antipasti for sale there on that day as well. Order by Wednesday and you can have a picnic waiting for you to enjoy in their elegant Italian garden -- the fig trees are loaded!
