Memphis Wine Lovers Message Board › Wine Events at the Brooks
The Brooks Museum has some wonderful-sounding events this month centered around Oregon wineries. They are pricy, so I am not going to post them as Meet Ups. But I also wanted you all to have the information in case you feel like attending. I think everything the Brooks does is top notch, so if you can splurge, I think you'll enjoy.
