Please bring (guests included) your favorite red varietal (Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot, etc.) and blends are OK too minimum $20 for all to enjoy and a heavy appetizer enough for 15 persons. These wines do well with hearty foods such as beef, chicken, pastas, charcuterie, cold meats, turkey and spicy foods such as Chinese for example. Please bring your own wine glass and serving utensils. We will provide the desserts.It should be a great evening.

When you RSVP, please state the wine and appetizer that you & your guest (if you are bringing a guest) are bringing to the party. 

We will be collecting $5 from everyone attending. Please have exact change.

This fun party is limited to 30, so if you RSVP “Yes” and your plans change, please update your RSVP accordingly. NO MAYBES. Victoria & Sam’s address, directions and phone number will be provided a day before (12/27) to those who RSVP “Going”.

Look forward to seeing you there! The party will take place indoors.

In order to attend, you must have attended 2 other wine tasting events at venues with the group.  No exceptions.
