I’m so very excited to announce we will be hosting a Wine & Cheese Paint Party at Venissimo in Del Mar! This is going to be such a fun event! This is our first hybrid event where you have the choice of joining us live at the Venissimo Del Mar shop “piazza del formaggio” courtyard or via Zoom from the comfort of your home! This Paint Party is in collaboration with Venissimo’s Wino Wednesday series, where Cheese Wiz Gina and Academy of Cheese Professor RobbyG share their knowledge about the featured Art.Terra orange wine and regale tales of being cheese mongers for well over a decade. You will create your very own wine and cheese painting on canvas featuring the wine and one of the paired cheeses of the evening.
Wine & Cheese Paint Party at Venissimo in Del Mar // June 2, 2021
I’ll be your artistic instructor for the evening, live from Del Mar. I’ll teach you how to paint this abstract painting with brush techniques while sipping on wine and nibbling on cheese.
You have your choice of getting just the perfectly paired cheese plate for two, and/or adding a bottle of the featured Art.Terra orange wine, and/or purchasing the painting kit to join in the fun. You also have the choice of picking up your selection at a shop to take home, or joining us in person in our outdoor courtyard in Del Mar (space is limited).
Then we’ll broadcast live at 5:00 on June 2 via Zoom, where we’ll chat together, paint together, eat and drink together! You can ask questions during the live chat and it’s always great fun. If you join in online, the Zoom link will be emailed the day of the event.
This is such a dream collaboration for me! I’ve been a fan of Venissimo ever since I stopped by their location in Liberty Station. Once I did the mural at Flower Hill, I knew I had to stop by the shop in Del Mar. Their cheese plates are so delicious. I had one recently on a stroll through the mall and a walk by the beach. If you’ve never been, it’s a real treat and such a knowledgeable place to learn about cheese!
I’m also excited to try this orange wine by Art Terra. How fitting of a name! The painting pulls from the beautiful orange color of the wine to make this a very unique experience.
There are a lot of options for joining us for this fun paint evening! I’d love to see you join us in person or on zoom! You’ll be able to pick up your paint kit at Mission Hills, North Park or Del Mar. Grab all of the details on the Venissimo ordering page. See you then! xo, Bri
