The Stanford Court Renaissance Hotel (905 California Street) is now hosting a monthly Sip and Savor Series, which will provide guests with an exceptional dining experience aimed at showcasing some of the best wines that Northern California has to offer.  On April 10th they will welcome several hallmark vintages from Bell Wine Cellars, a family-owned winery from Yountville, to accompany a four course tasting menu designed by Chef Celeste Pasag.

The dinner will kick off at 6:30PM and after the meal, Bell Wine Sommelier Joanne Lefebvre will be on-hand to answer questions as well as to pour the full-bodied 2004 and 2005 Cabernets that helped put this popular vineyard on the map.

The entire evening costs $80 per person, and reservations are limited but still available by calling (415) 989-3500.
