A movie about Merlot wine

Saturday, February 7
Andrews Hall
Doors open at 5:30pm, Movie at 7:00 pm
Tickets: $10

In partnership with wine sponsor Michel-Schlumberger, Sonoma Community Center is excited to host an exclusive Sonoma screening of the independent documentary Merlove. A chocolate reception will be hosted by Chaac Mol Chocolate.

Melove is a documentary about Merlot wine. The message of Merlove is that no single grape varietal should be singled out as superior or inferior to others. Documentary-style film-making is interwoven with the animation of a bottle of wine named Merlove, who must find a way to fill himself with love when aimlessly tossed into an ocean of mediocre Merlot wine. Director Rudy McClain and Associate
Producer Marisol Ramirez will be on hand to discuss the movie and answer questions.

Your ticket includes entrance into Spring Artist-in-Residence
Opening reception for KC Welch
Stop by to meet KC and see his large format paintings.

Visit the SCC Website to buy your tickets today!
Tickets also available by phone at 938-4626 ext 1 or in person at the community center front desk.
