Wine expert to showcase pairings in event.
Back by popular demand, wine educator John Bauccio will return to the COC campus this spring to lead an exploration of dessert wines and the tasty treats that best accompany them, at the second College of the Canyons Library Associates wine tasting event.
As the second installment of the “In Good Taste” series presented by the College of the Canyons Foundation, wine lovers will be treated to a collection of classic dessert wines and accompanying desserts from around the world — guided through the experience by accomplished wine educator and classically trained chef John Bauccio.
Bauccio became a wine educator at the Robert Mondavi Winery in Oakville, California before taking his career to San Francisco, where he worked as a buyer at the critically acclaimed Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant and represented the shop on buying trips throughout California, Spain and France. In addition, he has served as a judge at several wine competitions and always strives to expose the people he comes in contact with to new wines and different cultures through his fun and casual teaching approach.
The “In Good Taste” wine and dessert tasting event will take place Friday, April 18, in the College of the Canyons Library. The event will feature a 6 p.m. opening reception, where an appetizer of sherry and tapas prepared by COC culinary arts students will be served, and will be followed by the guided event, lasting until approximately 8:30 p.m.
All guests must be 21 to attend, and space is limited. The cost to attend the event is $85, by reservation only, with guests required to RSVP by Friday April 11.
