Uncork Central Valley Wines (Week 15)

A close friend of the family is entering her last days at Fresno State (YAY!) and is wrapping up her senior project.  Typically, I hear about ALL of these world record breaking deals (water balloon toss, egg dying, standing on one foot, etc.) but this one REALLY hits the mark for me.  YES....this is a "Must See".
Four creative young ladies make up "Hip Chicks Marketing" (thanks Hilary for the correction) and they have got a super idea.  Grab a friend and join nus May 4th at 7:00 p.m. At ApCal (Yeah Darren.....this looks like fun!!) for UnWINEd Central California which will feature ONLY Central California Wines and we ALL KNOW this is my GIG, right?  Uncorking begins promptly at 8:00 p.m. and there is live jazz.  What a great way to spend a Friday night in the Valley

From their Press Release:

"Their aim is to gain national recognition for local valley wineries by promoting them through UnWINEd Central California events and throwing the biggest free admission “uncorking” party in the Central Valley.
Appellation: California is hosting this official Guinness World Records ™ event. The current standing record is 308 people uncorking wine simultaneously in Las Vegas. With a free Jazz Blues concert and plenty of wineries being represented, the UnWINEd Central California event intends to make history by breaking a world record.
The history making event will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 4th at Appellation: California in Madera, CA. Wine can be purchased from a variety of wineries including Fresno State wine, for the actual uncorking which will take place promptly at 8 p.m. The first 50 people will receive a free participation kit which includes a bottle of wine and an official opener, sponsored by Metrokane.
For more information or to schedule an interiew, call the girls of UnWINEd Central California at (559) 905-8984 or email Visit our website at and Facebook page"

The last record was in Las Vegas with 308 bottles....A party at my Uncle Tony's when I was a kid could beat this hands down so I think they have a shot.  Hopefully you will come out and be a part of a very unique Central Valley event!! See you there!!
