Thirsty? Check Out S.F.'s Newest Wine Truck!



wine-truck-300 Just when we thought the mobile movement couldn't get any bigger — from auto boutiques to coffee shops on wheels — Healdsburg-based winery Simi is upping the ante with a snazzy little vino vehicle. That's right, a truck with the sole purpose of delivering Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon en masse. Um, it's about time!

Because we consider booze one of the most underrated sections of the food pyramid, this might just be the best thing to happen to our diets since the invention of the mimosa. But, even better than the classic combo of champagne and OJ is a full-bodied red matched with smooth jazz, dontcha think? And, luckily, the truck's final destination will be the Healdsburg Jazz Festival, where guests can enjoy soulful sounds while sipping Simi's tasty pours. Sounds like the perfect pairing! (Don't forget to look at our roadtrip guide to the area, while you're out there!)

And what would a wine tasting be without an assortment of finger foods to nosh on? Simi's executive chef will be serving up Sonoma-inspired small bites, so come hungry...and thirsty. Not that we needed to tell you that!

When: Friday, June 8, 6 to 8 p.m., Saturday, June 9, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Where: Healdsburg Jazz Festival at the Raven Performing Arts Theater, 115 North Street (at Center Street); 707-433-6335.
