RUMFORD – Black Mountain’s fourth annual wine tasting will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9. This year’s Red and White at Black will feature the offerings of Dry Creek Vineyard, founded by David S. Stare in 1972.

Stare arrived in California with a dream to build a winery modeled after a chateau in the Loire Valley of France. As the first new winery in Dry Creek Valley following Prohibition, Dry Creek Vineyard paved the way for a new era of winemaking in Sonoma County. His dream was realized as Dry Creek now produces award-winning wines in the heart of Sonoma, Calif.

Light fare will accompany six different hand-selected wines and a 25-year veteran of the wine industry will discuss the different features and varietals. Musical ambiance will be provided by Peter Koch.

Cost is $25 per person. Sign-ups are being taken now. For more information, call Black Mountain at 364-8977; visit Black Mountain of Maine, 39 Glover Road; or log on to
