Wine Club at our House....
Last night was AWESOME.
Jason and I are part of our neighborhood wine club. When we first moved into the neighborhood we decided to try out some of the clubs that were offered. One of the first clubs we went to was wine club. We were a little nervous about it as we weren't really big wine drinkers at the time. Well times sure have changed, because I'd say we are avid wine drinkers now. It was definitely a turning point for us. We've made a lot of friends from wine club and have had a lot of fun drinking wine and enjoy expos and wine tours.
Our wine club usually meets the 4th Thursday of every month, so if anyone is local reading this you are welcome to come by the clubhouse at around 7:30 pm on the 4th Thursday of every month (except November or December). The tasting fee is always $10, and there is usually between 6-8 wines to taste. November we don't meet on the 4th Thursday because it is Thanksgiving. This year we decided to host it at our house on the 3rd week of November. Which was yesterday!
Since it was at our house I talked to the wine chairs to see if I could make it into a charitable giving night and have a wine raffle for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Turn out was good. We had 21 people tasting wine, and many of those people donated a bottle of wine for the raffle and bought raffle tickets in hopes of winning all the wine donated. We raised $275.00 for LLS and everyone seemed to have a good time. We had good food and got to hang out with good people. Even Scout was good around all the people and I think everyone enjoyed the Rioja's that were tasted. Ohh and the raffle winner was my friend Chris Underwood. YAY!!
Clean up wasn't to bad either. Of course I have food left over...but that will be coming up to Virginia with us for Thanksgiving!
