Wine Tasting

 

This group meets once a month in a members home on a date and  time determined by the host.  The host choose the wines and purchases them.  Occasionally the group will have a special event at an outside venue chosen by the host.  This is a great way to learn about different wines and have a great time.  Members of this group are encouraged to RSVP and bring a hearty appetizer.  Cost: $15 per person.
