These days, you don’t need to drag your kids to Bordeaux, France, to indulge in charcuterie boards, rich cheeses and delectable wines. In fact, you can imbibe wine from around the world, including California’s own distinguished viticulture, at the Pop and Pour wine tasting event at the CLARA Auditorium (1425 24th St., Sacramento), kicking off Sacramento’s inaugural River City Wine Week. You’ll get to enjoy a selection of over 35 wines, a live DJ and light fare provided by Bella Bru Cafe for a $60 entrance fee, a portion of which will go to WellSpace Health, a collection of community centers that provide healthcare services. For non-drinkers who’d like to join in on the fun, the event also offers a $20 designated driver ticket, which includes everything sans the wine. River City Wine Week will host similar events throughout the week until Aug. 11. Highlights include wine tasting on the Sacramento River Train, karaoke at the Whired Wine Bar (410 L St., Sacramento) and a dinner at Cafe Vinoteca (3535 Fair Oaks Blvd. Sacramento), which for $75 includes a four-course dinner with six wine pairings all led by Donal Smith, a sommelier and professor at Chico State.
