If you’re going to let August slip by like a bottle of wine, make sure vomFASS is providing your vino. VomFASS is a European Market and Tasting Room. The concept was born in Southern Germany over 25 years ago with Colleen and Jay Cavalieri joining the franchise to bring vomFASS to Coronado and Ventura. The Navy brought Colleen and Jay to Coronado, and they have been calling it home for over 23 years. In February 2021, the cork was popped on the Ferry Landing’s tasting room and shop.
In the last two and a half years, vomFASS has grown a reputation as a philanthropic business. They have supported a range of beneficiaries from Coronado Schools Foundation and PAWS to their upcoming participation in the 14th Annual Amazing Race for Children’s Wishes.
Bourbon and BBQ – August 18th
Along with philanthropic endeavors, Colleen and Jay also partner with other Coronado businesses. Currently on sale are tickets to their Bourbon and BBQ event featuring Lil’ Piggy’s! The best way to send off the summer is the perfect combination of two beloved American traditions: bourbon whiskey and barbecued cuisine. Attendees can savor the rich flavors of different bourbons, from smooth and mellow to bold and spicy. Alongside the impressive selection of bourbons, there will be BBQ bites and sides from Lil Piggy’s BBQ. This event offers a wonderful opportunity for bourbon enthusiasts and BBQ lovers to come together, enjoy great company, and celebrate the authentic flavors of the South.
Check back as vomFASS events ramp up for the fall. On the horizon are wine pairings, cocktail classes, salad dressing workshops, and more!
