Sparkling Flights at Cooperage

Last night's event at Cooperage had the highest attendance so far of the week! Luke, Sara, Danielle, and Andrew all enjoyed flights of sparkling wine, as well as red wine, and whiskey!

Upcoming Events - Last Chance! Plus Wine Week After Party

Tomorrow is the last day of events! A few of us will be doing the Many Moods of Malbec class at 2, followed by a Wine Week Finale after-party gathering at Andrew and Liz's. If you can't join us at Vintage, come on by my place around 4 for more wine and merriment!
