NEWS & EVENTS
May 18- Blending Party: We have decided to offer two dates (and move it to warmer months) for our blending party this year! Here are the details of the event: John will start off with the basics of blending theory and then each couple will create two bottles of their own blend. After everyone has bottled, labeled and corked their winning wine we will hold a blind tasting and the winners will be announced! It will be followed by a traditional Zamborelli Italian feast to pair with your new blends (well, the good ones anyways!). The second bottle is yours to take home to show off to your friends. Winners, of course, receive bragging rights for the whole year! At last years event, the 2 year reigning champs were taken down by the underdogs but they have promised to win the title back with gusto! Dare to challenge them? The date is Saturday, May 18 at 4pm. Cost is $120 per couple and we only have enough space for 7 couples at each event.
