Purchasing the cookies from a wine club member’s daughter, Meadowcroft will pair Samoas, Thin Mints, and Trefoils with such wines as the 2016 Los Carneros Chardonnay, and All She Wrote Port with toasted coconut Samoas, on Saturday, March 10 at their Cornerstone tasting room. $20. Noon to 4 p.m. Reservations at 934-4090.
