WMNF Benefit Wine Tasting Wednesday September 26th, 7-9pm

Please join us Wednesday September 26th, 7-9pm for a special wine tasting in benefit for WMNF radio. I started listening to WMNF over 25 years ago and haven’t listened to commercial radio since. WMNF advocates for peace, social and environmental justice through independent media and programming neglected by the mainstream. They embrace diversity, tolerance of others’ opinions and freedom of expression. WMNF celebrates and promotes the creative, cultural and political vitality of the local community.

We will be tasting 15 of my latest and greatest wines plus amazing charcuterie and small bites. Tickets are $25/person in advance and $35 the day of. Half the ticket sales and 10% of my wine sales during the tasting will benefit WMNF. Must be 21 to attend.

Winesmith sells wine retail and by-the-glass, especially during tastings. Cheers!
