October Friday Wine Tastings

Blind Tasting (Every First Friday!) – Friday October 5th, 6-9pm

First Friday October 5th, 6-9pm we are tasting Blind. Blind means the wines will be brown-bagged so you don’t know what you’re tasting until after. I ask that you be here at 6, 7 or 8pm as we will taste and reveal the wines in groups. This tasting is $15/person; no tickets necessary. Winesmith sells wine retail & by-the-glass, especially during tastings. Cheers!

What a crowd!

Wow! What a great crowd at last Wednesdays CASA benefit wine tasting. We raised over $1,000 to help victims of domestic violence. Thanks everyone who attended, CASA and Dan of Eat This! for the beautiful and tasty charcuterie.
