Wine Tastings

Approximately four times a year, we offer wine tastings for our members to enjoy. The purpose of the tastings is to explore the fine wines and cheeses of Italy. Please click on the PDFs below for the wine tasting notes from our previous tastings.


The next tasting is scheduled for early Summer 2016. Details to follow.

A lovely evening at Anne and Jay's downtown loft home and roof top deck with spectacular views of the city. We had a great time relaxing and enjoying the evening, sipping delightful Italian wines accompanied by some classic Fall foods, getting to know each other, and learning about southern Italian wines.
