JUNE 28 >> KEENAN WINERY WINE TASTING

You have heard of a line-up, but what about a wine-up? The Kellogg Center is offering an exclusive taste ¬– literally– of six wines usually unavailable for sampling. Kristen Pennington and Tokár Glenn lead you through this special experience available on Michigan State’s campus. These exclusive tastes include chardonnay, mernet reserve, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and zinfandel, all ranging from four to five years old. These Napa Valley specials hail straight from Spring Mountain District, which is highly acclaimed in the viticulture society. Basically, it should taste a little better than that boxed wine on the kitchen counter at home. The casual mix and mingle event features appetizers from the State Room chefs to complement the evening buzz, meant in both meanings of the word. You can always go back to Franzia tomorrow. 5:30-7 p.m. $35. Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, 219 S. Harrison Rd., East Lansing. (517) 432-5049, rhs.msu.edu.
