Virtual Mardi Gras Wine Tasting Fundraiser

$120 per household

Let the good times roll . . . laissez les bon temps rouler!

Please join the Art Alliance of the Riverside Art Museum in indulging in a fun evening to celebrate Mardi Gras (virtually, via Zoom) with a guided wine tasting, a cooking demo of classic N’awlins food, and some art, music, and history of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Chris Kern of Forgotten Grapes is our sommelier and he will feature the wines and the winemaker of Shadow Run Vineyards in Paso Robles. Our cooking demo is courtesy of Chef Maree Reed (Chez Rae Chef) who hails from New Orleans.

Join us on Saturday, February 6, starting at 6:30 p.m. Polish your wine glasses and enjoy two bottles of wine (a red and a white that you can’t buy in our local stores, safely delivered to you from Shadow Run) along with a swag bag of New Orleans Mardi Gras lagniappe (a little something extra), recipes, and more. At $120 per household, you can enjoy a great evening and support the Riverside Art Museum!

Deadline to register in time to receive the wine, etc., in time for the Zoom event is Monday, January 25, 2021. We can ship to the contiguous United States. Additional shipping charges may apply to non-Western states after registering.

Registration is closed to anyone outside of the Riverside, CA, area due to shipping deadlines.

HOWEVER, if you are within Riverside, CA, we have a limited number of tickets available for either pick-up or delivery of the wines. Please email Kathy Bocian at for availability.
