MIMI ESCABAR

United States Prohibition went into effect on this date in 1920 with the ratification of the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It prohibited the sale and manufacture of alcohol. On Dec. 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified. The 21st Amendment repealed the 18th Amendment, making alcohol once again legal. This was the only time in U.S. history that an Amendment has been repealed.

The 21st Amendment makes it possible to enjoy the following events.

 

Personal fun

It’s Personal, the new wine shop and gift boutique at 250 Main St. in Placerville, is having several fun things to do that all go with wine. On Wednesday, Jan. 16 there is a brides’ night where brides can create a label for their special day. There is no design fee. On Friday, Jan. 18 comedian Ben Schilling is appearing and on Saturday, Jan. 19 J. Woody will be playing. To get more details call 530-303-3792.

 

Clean up on wines

The MacCready’s and the friendly staff at Sierra Vista Vineyards and Winery, 4560 Cabernet Way in the Pleasant Valley area, were cleaning the cellar and discovered some really great wines. They are going to offer these wonderful finds starting Friday, Jan. 18. Just a reminder that Sierra Vista has a beautiful view from its picnic area. For more information call 530-622-7221.

Blending fun

Fenton Herriott Vineyards, 120 Jacquier Court in Placerville, is offering blending sessions with the winemaker on Saturday, Jan. 19 and Sunday, Jan. 20. Participants will be guided through a wine blending session with the winemaker and they will taste and evaluate the characteristics of each varietal to be blended. Next, teams of two will be formed to create a blend. Once each team has perfected its blend, the team will present the blend to the group.
