Baldwin Park residents gathered on Tuesday, Nov. 30, for the French Fete at Golden Hour Wine. 

The French Fete invited locals to taste five different French wines accompanied by light French bites. 

The event was hosted by Golden Hour Wine in collaboration with The Dinner Party Project, an organization that helps to connect people in the community through food and conversation. 

Golden Hour Wine, owned by Heather LaVine, carries small production wines that are responsibly farmed and thoughtfully made. 

Dana Marie Roquemore, of TDPP, wanted to partner with Golden Hour Wine because she loves supporting female-owned businesses.

“Her shop is done with such excellence, and I felt folks should known about this lovely spot,” Roquemore says. 

The 6 p.m. seating included seven participants: Melanie Farley, Andressa Silva, Eric Mohrman, Christina Ruiz, Robyn Bertram, Anil Kumar and Dan Phan. 

LaVine presented the French wines for tasting and gave a brief history on the background of the wine, best pairings and more. 

LaVine said when Roquemore approached her about doing TDPP at Golden Hour, it seemed like the perfect fit. 

“While Golden Hour is a wine shop, it is also meant to be a community gathering place,” LaVine says. “The space is small and intimate and conducive to bringing people together — a spot for old friends to meet and new connections to be made.”
