Case Club Member Event - May Barrel Tastings
We are very pleased to announce that we will be adding two Barrel Tasting Evening Events for Case Club Members this month. We booked up so quickly last month, so we decided that we had to do it again. As a result of your inquiries, we have decided to extend the Q&A event focusing on the effects of oak and growing sites with owner/winemaker, Brad Knapp.
These additional evening events will take place on Sunday, May 18 and Sunday, May 25 at 5 p.m. Reservations are required and space is very limited. Give us a call to make your reservation for these insightful evenings at (610) 756-4481.
