2017 Wine Event

An array of reds

This year's Wine Lover's Delight was a fun and educational evening at Hidden Valley, where attendees learned to "Explore the World of Wine" with guest speaker Karen Mizell, Director of Strategic Sales for the world famous E & J Gallo Winery.

Guests enjoyed samples of six wines - three white, three red - and were taught how to evaluate the wines with all of our senses, just as world class wine competition judges do. Mizell was an excellent instructor in describing the attributes and nuances of a variety of red and white wines.

As in years past, our silent auction featured rare and distinctive wines from several local wineries. All of the proceeds from this event allow the FOCVL to support the Buckeye in many ways. We're grateful to everyone who attended and supported this year's event, and we look forward to doing it again in the future.
