Event description

Description

At Saint Frank we believe that a beverage like coffee can connect us to a deeper and fuller experience of our lives and the world around us. Much of our appreciation for coffee in terms of flavor and terroir and of course its sensory and sensual enjoyment in a social context finds inspiration and parallel in the story and experience of wine.

Dr. Gisela H. Kreglinger grew up on a winery in Franconia, Germany where her family has crafted wines for many generations and in pursuing academic life with a PhD in Historical Theology, she as has recently published a fantastic work, The Spirituality of Wine, that explores these ideas.

California's legendary Alice Waters of Chez Panisse has this to say, "Gisela Kregingler writes with good humor and real piety about the transformative power of good wine. This is a thoughtful, prayerful, wide-ranging book, reminding us on every page that spirituality and gastronomy are inextricably linked."

Join us for an evening with Gisela Kregingler at Saint Frank Saturday June 11 at 8pm for:

  • A Presentation from Gisela on the "transformative power of good wine and food"

  • A Guided Wine Tasting of Four Terroir Expressive and Balanced California Wines (4 - 2oz Pours)

  • Q&A with Terroir Expressive Saint Frank Coffees
