WWS Educational Events 

Across the country, WWS hosts many exciting events each month. Here are some of the upcoming events for each of our chapters. To register for any of these events, go to the WWS Events Calendar.

Portland: Wine At America's Table Dinner at Simpatica
Monday, October 3, 2016 - 6PM Until 8:30PM
Our most popular event of the year is upon us. Join us on Monday, October 3rd for a wine pairing dinner at Simpatica, a Portland favorite. For those of you who haven't heard, Simpatica closed down their public operation earlier this summer, and now the only way to enjoy their seasonal slow food is through private events. A meal like this would easily run you $100 a plate, and you'll enjoy wine education from Wes Elliott of Mitchell Wine Group to boot. What's not to love? Bring a friend and enjoy a meal you won't soon forget.
