RB Tastings – a benefit for the Rancho Bernardo Historical Society – is scheduled for 12 noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 2, at Bernardo Winery, located at at 13330 Paseo del Verano Norte in Rancho Bernardo.

Tickets are $15 per person in advance and $20 per person at the door, or can be purchased for $25 per two people in advance, and $35 for two people at the door. Each paid entrant will receive a keepsake of a wine glass, to commemorate the event.

Gary Powers, the RBHS 2nd Vice President, said this year’s event – the first held in several years – includes plenty of entertainment. “There are three musical groups lined up to play two sets each,” he said. “The groups include, Clachan Boys, who play Scottish and Irish music; the Blackwater Blues Band from San Marcos; and Vic Moraga of the Castilian Gypsy, who plays many local venues.”

Aside from the entertainment, participating restaurants include Café Merlot, Elephant Bar, Jersey Mikes in High Country West and many others. Bernardo Winery, Salerno Winery, and several others are expected to participate – and at least five or six microbreweries.

Powers said featured artists exhibiting at the event include Adamoff Designs (mixed media collages); Alm Studio (glass art); R.A. Morey Glass (fused glass); Patricia’s Treasures (unique felt and silk scarves, flowers and accessories); and Lynda Hamilton, Association of Mouth and Foot Painting.
