Dallas: Vina and Veggies
Sept 9, 6PM
Does wine pair with vegetarian food? If so, what type? White or red? Let’s find out! Kevin Trevino from Dionysus Imports will join us to share the wines from Brooks; an Oregon winery featured in the documentary "American Wine Story". We think the Brooks selection of whites and pinot noirs will be the perfect match for the vegetarian menu.

Rochester: Members' Choice: Celebrity Wines
Sept 9, 7:00PM
Our annual Members Choice event is Tuesday, September 9th and this year’s theme is “Celebrity Wines”. There are many reasons why celebrities gravitate to the world of wine. Some celebrities come from a family with a long history of winemaking. Some have been lifelong wine enthusiasts and enter the wine industry in order to do something that they enjoy. Others like the challenge of a new enterprise and some celebrities enter the wine industry simply because they can. Our stellar line-up of presenters who will be ready to share tidbits and trivia about celebrities and the wines they make or represent. Come join us at Penfield Country Club for a fun, star-studded evening with celebrity wine and food pairings.
