We will be providing a list of Women-made wines to purchase locally prior to this event for you to taste along with us.

Preparing for your tasting with Telesomm: For this tasting, feel free to pick up a wine made by a woman (see a list below), or just grab a glass of something you have at home.  The session will focus on learning to taste, so BYOB and join Telesomm Kelly as she leads us through the process of tasting wine. Join Telesomm for this tasting, and we will have a surprise for one attendee of the tasting event.
