Look forward to another sommelier's tasting dinner with aged wines. If you are joining for the first time, review comments on our recent meetings to get a sense what our tasting dinners are about.

All wines will be tasted together and analyzed by our team of Certified Wine Specialists and Sommeliers. A great learning experience for the wine beginner and connoisseur alike!
