Next Meetup

Bacchus Group monthly wine social in Venice!
SOCIAL HOUR: Island Time is a lovely, comfortable venue, but they don't serve food. So plan to bring your favorite carry-out or prepared dinner (sushi? barbecue?) and enjoy it with our first bottle of wine for the evening. We'll spend the first hour or so having a bite to eat and getting to know one another. Think of the Bacchus Group as your monthly wine social group! MEMBER DISCOUNT: All members who attend will receive a 5% DISCOUNT on all bottle purchases and spirits tastings. Discount valid on the night of the meetup only, and only to members who pay the $20 event fee. TASTING AND DISCUSSION (after the SOCIAL HOUR): Let's taste some great wines! Depending on the number of attendees, we will taste up to six wines and have some bread and cheese to accompany the wines. Island Time Spirits will be our venue in Venice for our monthly meetups on the last Tuesday of the month. • What to bring Bring your friends! $20 cash per person will cover the cost of the bottle(s) we open, plus the bread and cheese. Any left over open bottles will be up for grabs at the end. You are welcome and encouraged to bring your own wine glass(es). I have a set of three Riedel tasting glasses that I like to bring to tastings. Aerators are welcome as well! • Important to know $20 per person (or more, if members want to taste some expensive wines), plus a one-time $20 lifetime membership fee payable after you've attended a few meetups and decide to join the club. The membership fee will cover the Meetup administrative costs and other miscellaneous costs for drop stops, openers, glasses and so forth. Please DO NOT check in with the cashier when you arrive. Heidi McLain willl be in the Tasting Room to greet you. NOTE: If you RSVP "Yes" and decide for any reason that will NOT attend, please change your RSVP to "No" as soon as possible. Thank you.
