Sarasota, Florida (September 19, 2014) – Richard’s Foodporium®, a 35 year old chain of natural & specialty products headquartered in Sarasota, Florida, is excited to be hosting two wine pairing events at their Clark location on October 16th and their Ringling location on October 23rd, both from 5:30 to 7:30pm.
This is a free event for the community to come enjoy some wines selected and poured by Bruce Heiman, a certified Sommelier from KeHE distributors. Bruce will be educating attendees on the wines he has chosen, as well as discussing the difference between organic and non-organic wines. Richard’s is providing light snacks, such as cheese and nuts that will be paired with the wines that Bruce will be pouring, along with other refreshments. “I’m honored to be working with Richard’s and having the opportunity to bring my knowledge of wine and pairings to the Sarasota community. Richard’s offers a pleasant variety of both organic and non-organic wines that I’ve personally helped bring into their stores” Says Bruce.
Also present at the event will be board certified Naturopath and CEO of Probulin Probiotics, Doctor Jason Mitchell. Dr. Mitchell will be available to not only educate customers on the health benefits of probiotics, but share his personal experience with a life-threatening disease that made him aware of our bodies need for probiotics.
