* Global Vineyard Importers
Special thanks also to Wines of Chile
which has assisted us in many ways both with our Three Sisters event and otherwise.
Chilean Fresh Fruit - We are very pleased to have the support of the Chilean Fresh Fruit Association (http://www.chileanfreshfruit.com/) for our upcoming Three Sisters event. Chile exports a wide range of fruit and their fruit industry represents one of the highlights ofthe relationship between Chile and California since many of Chile's successful agricultural practices have been influenced by academic and commercial exchanges with California, especially UC Davis, over a long period.
Even though it is currently winter in Chile, at our event this Saturday we expect to be able to serve Clementine Tangerines from Chile, which we believe were grown not far from Viña del Mar!
Have you had a Chilean Lomito? It may be Chile's most famous sandwich and will be one of the items you can sample at our Chile table at our August 11 Three Sisters celebration here in Sausalito. Don't miss your chance! For more information and tickets see http://sausalitosistercities.org/. Jayne Reichert from the Cavallo Point cooking school will be preparing that dish.
