Founded in 2006 by platinum-selling singer and songwriter Edwin McCain and restaurateur Carl Sobocinski, euphoria educates, entices, enlightens, and entertains.
This highly anticipated weekend-long event includes exclusive tasting events, cooking demonstrations and wine seminars, as well as multi-course dinners and live musical performances. Dedicated to excellence, euphoria features domestic and international wines, celebrity chefs, master sommeliers, and national recording artists.
It is my hope that some GEAM'ers step forward to pick some events and get them on the calendar, especially considering our added bonus of 15% off the tickets. There are loads of events, so I feel we should have at least a few on the calendar.
