Wine Club Pickup Party

Join other wine club members for a special wine tasting with special guest Michael Carroll of European Cellars. This month's theme is "Springtime in Spain" and we'll be exploring all sorts of fun themes within that -- women winemakers, biodynamic winemaking and organic practices -- in addition to simply enjoying old vine, small production wines that you'll be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
