with Samantha Sheehan of POE Wines
International Women’s Day is next Tuesday, and we’re continuing our annual celebration of talented, hardworking women with our third woman winemaker’s dinner.
Samantha Sheehan left a career in finance to found POE Wines in 2009. She was inspired by time spent in Burgundy, a region she describes as “….one of the most beautiful, soulful places in the world.” The POE brand was created to show that California, too, has incredible and distinctive terroir, varying dramatically from one microclimate to the next. POE only produces single vineyard wines to showcase that distinction, and they pick only when the fruit is balanced and flavorful.
The Nitty Gritty
You’ll have a wonderful 3-course dinner paired with 4 wines, and have the opportunity to meet and chat with Samantha.
2013 Ferrington Chardonnay
2013 Van der Kamp Pinot Noir
2013 Manchester Ridge Pinot Noir
These dinners always have a big turnout. So that we can accommodate everyone, we’ll be using every seat in the dining room, including the communal tables & the chef’s counter. You can book a table anytime from 5 to 9pm. Price is $75 per person, before tax and service charge.
Tickets are available on Brown Paper Tickets. If you have a restricted diet and would like to attend, please call the restaurant (415.824.4224), or send us an email before buying tickets.

11am ’til we run out
Mark your calendars for another Oyster Day, filled with delicious, raw and bar-b-que’d briny bivalves from Two X Sea. We’ll have rosé and plenty of sparkling whites flowing all day, along with a few other special treats on the menu.
Make your reservation here, or by calling the restaurant.
Oya Organics Farm
Our “Sapore di Marzo” farm partner
In keeping with the International Women’s Day theme, we have partnered with a female farmer, Marsha Habib, from Oya Organics for the upcoming “Taste of March” event. For the week of March 22-27, we will be featuring a new seasonal pizza with produce from Marsha’s farm.
For more information about Kitchen Table Advisors and Sapore di Marzo, checkout our last newsletter.
Oya Organics is a young farming family, currently producing on 15 acres of certified organic land in Hollister, California.
The farmers, Marsha Sayuri Habib and Modesto Sanchez Cruz bring a youthful mix of agro-ecology and traditional knowledge to the farm. And they also collaborate with several other neighboring farmers who inspire silagra.
Oya grows a little bit of everything: many varieties of tomatoes, peppers, corn, beans, squash, cucumbers, lettuces, leafy greens, root crops, herbs, flowers, melons, strawberries, and pasture raised hen eggs.
Marsha and her team distribute produce directly to the Bay Area community, so their produce gets to you at its peak. They have a small neighborhood CSA program with drop-off locations in Santa Clara and San Benito counties, or you can find them at the farmers’ markets in Belmont, Berkeley and Morgan Hill.
