Tucson: Actor/Director wine tasting tomorrow

Dear TTA List Members,


Now for something completely different…


Please join me tomorrow, Friday 8/29, 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., at Pastiche Modern Eatery for a wine tasting event featuring wines by actors and directors.  Pastiche has been doing Friday wine tastings for some time now, but they have asked me to be their first “customer” host this Friday, which means I get to present the wines and poor you a taste of each.


Pastiche is a wonderful supporter of the arts in Tucson.  This year, Pastiche was awarded TAPC’s Lumie Award for “Small Business Partner (fewer than 50 employees) — For outstanding support of the arts”.  Twice a year, Pastiche has its “Philanthropy with Phlavor” month during which every guest can select their favorite charity or arts organization in Tucson to which a portion of their check will be donated. For more information see  And that’s just part of the support they give to our community.


The wine tasting is only $5.  I hope to see you there.  This could turn into a fun mixer for the Tucson theatrical community. 


Here are the wines that I have selected to present in keeping with the theme:


ACT 1: Sparkling Marilyn “Blonde de Noirs” – to clear the pallet and get into the spirit of legendary Hollywood.

Act 2: Newman’s Own Chardonnay 2006 - Like all other Newman’s Own® products, Paul Newman and the Newman’s Own Foundation donate all profits and royalties after taxes to educational and charitable purposes.

Act 3: Fess Parker Frontier Red NV Lot 81 - made in the same down to earth spirit of the frontiersman who tamed this land, Davy Crocket.

Act 4: MacMurray Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2006 – He may have had “three sons” but Fred’s daughter Kate is the spokesperson for the family ranch and winery today.

Final Scene: Coppola Director’s Cut Zinfandel “Dry Creek Valley 2005” – The Godfather of winemakers.
