You are invited to join the Fairfield County Wine Meetup for an exclusive event at the newest, coolest wine bar in downtown Westport: Luxe Modern Wine & Cocktails.
Joining us for the evening will be Ian from Serge Dore Selections, a boutique wine importer and Laura from the Fairfield Cheese Company. The format of the event will be very casual, mix & mingle. There will be six tasting "stations" where you can sample a French wine paired with a French cheese.
Monday, May 21
6 - 8pm
$35/person, all inclusive
Because capacity is limited you must pre-pay with your RSVP to guarantee your spot.
