Fall Evening at the Vineyard

 

Let's have a classy Meetup at Paradise Hills Vineyard in Wallingford on Friday, November 15! If it's a nice fall evening, we can enjoy the weather and the wine on their beautiful patio, which has a lovely view of the vines. If it turns out to be chilly, we can get cozy inside by the fireplace.

Wine tastings are only $8 each, and they include 5 wine samples and a free wine glass. You can also purchase wine by the bottle or by the glass. Paradise Hills allows guests to bring in snacks and appetizers (but no outside beverages), so we can bring some food with us. Some people have already volunteered to bring cheese, crackers, hummus, and bread - if you can bring something, please leave it in the comments below!

Please RSVP if you are going to attend so that we can let the winery know if we will have a large group. They appreciate a heads up beforehand! Hope to see you there!

    I'm so sorry about this, but I've been sick all day and aren't feeling better like I'd hope so I'm not making it tonight :( I hope everyone has fun and look forward to meeting you all next week!

    Can't wait to see everyone tomorrow night - I think we're going to have a lot of fun! I upped our reservation so that there is room for everyone. If you get there early, just let them know you're there for Samantha's reservation (or if you are a first-timer - there will be a few - they can also direct you to our table if you can't easily spot us). Should be a classy evening!

    It's been a crazy week with work so I won't have time to make anything for tomorrow but I'll stop at the store to pick up something edible. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Hi, looking forward to meeting everyone:) This will be my first meetup! Please let me know if I need to bring anything with me?

    • Samantha

      Hi Nagham, can't wait to meet you! This will be a few other people's first meetup, too :) this place allows you to bring your own food, so I know some people are bringing appetizers to share (cheese, bread, hummus, etc). If you'd like to bring some food, that's always welcome! The only rule is no outside beverages. See you soon :)

      2 · November 13, 2013

  • Samantha

    Haha we are totally going to pack this place! Can't wait! Again, please update your RSVP if you can't make it so I can be sure to give the owners an accurate count (it's relatively small).

    I called the owners and have a table reserved for our group on the 15th, so we are all set! If something comes up and you can't make it, please be sure to update your RSVP so I can provide them with an accurate count. See you all soon!

    Been there before, and it's beautiful there, but I didn't care for any of the wines there as they weren't sweet enough. I will be there for the company and atmosphere though. I'll probably bring a sandwich for myself and hummus and crackers to share. As it gets closer, I'll update if I decide to bring something else instead. This will be my 1st meetup. Will be nice to meet you all!

      If you like sweeter wines, you should check out White Silo Winery when you get a chance. All of their wines are fruity - they have rhubarb, blackberry, raspberry... yum!

    Sorry! I wish I could make it - gotta love a good visit to a vineyard!

    October 25, 2013

    • Samantha

      Hopefully next time! They are open year round, and a cozy night by the fire in the winter could be nice :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
