Whole Foods Venice - Wine Tasting and Art Exhibit: March 1, 2014 5-8 pm @wholefoods

Disclosure: This is a partnered post with Whole Foods. All opinions are my own.

Art and wine goes hand in hand and this Saturday, March 1, 2014, from 5-8 pm you can attend an event at Whole Foods Venice to benefit the Whole Planet Foundation. The wine tasting will feature samples of spectacular value-priced French wine paired with petit fours. 

You will enjoy the art of the wine label designer and Germany-based French artist Gildas Coudrais. I am a sucker for labels that pop and are unique. Coudrais brings a unique touch to wine labels and his artwork gets close to the aesthetics of pop culture. His work is reminiscent of large billboards on the Sunset Strip but remains loyal to his European tradition. He experiments with a wide-ranged repertoire of history of art, which he combines with quotations from media, advertising and poetry. 

Featured wines

• Chantebelle Sauvignon Blanc

$9.99/750 ml

A bright and brisk beauty with crisp citrus flavors, it's sensational start to the evening, especially with chilled shrimp and goat cheese!

• King Rabbit Malbec


Rich, black plums, berries and cherries dance smoothly on the palate, hoping to get a turn with roasted duck, beef, or rabbit!

• Anciens Temps Cabernet – Syrah

$9.99/750 ml

This is serious bang for your buck, with robust flavors of black pepper and berries, and a vanilla-kissed finish. It begs for steak au poivre topped with St. Agur bleu cheese!

• Eagle Coq Pinot Noir

$9.99/750 ml

A pleasantly priced Pinot Noir with juicy red cherry and currant flavors pleasing French & California drinkers alike, especially when served with baked Brie or Coq Au Vin!

• Fantastique Pinot Noir

$9.99/750 ml

A fantastically bolder Pinot, with flavors of spiced black cherries that would love to meet up with some cedar-plank grilled salmon or a French dip sandwich!

The prices are amazing and the artwork is delightful so much so that these are perfect to gift any time on a whim. I love the King Rabbit Malbec and Chantebelle Sauvignon Blanc myself and for my friends. How fun is the rabbit design, especially since Easter is coming up!

Make sure to attend this delightful evening and enjoy yourself. It's just $10 per person and the proceeds will be benefiting the Whole Planet Foundation.
