Sip & Share

Got Wine?

Sip & Share Wine Tasting Event!

For most people, the best wine they ever drank had more to do with their company, what they were eating and where they drank it than with the liquid in the bottle. Just about any wine tastes good when shared with good friends and family.

Think of the time you tasted wine at a winery while overlooking a vineyard when the grapes begin ripening and changing color and while you and your friends re-told good time stories. You loved the wine so much that you bought a case of it at the winery!
The next time you pulled the cork, you were alone and wanted something to sip while watching Anthony Bourdain and waiting for your spouse to make it home from a meeting. Not the same wine, right? Without food, friends and laughter, the wine is isn’t terrible, but it doesn’t equal that first time at the vineyard.

That’s why we’re holding our “Sip & Share” tasting event!  We want to give you the opportunity to share some wines with friends, and perhaps win a prize. Bring two bottles of the same wine (and, maybe a snack).  As Mr. Rogers said, “It’s nice to share.”

Check below for how this works.  The Fun-O-Meter will be in the red zone!
