There is nothing for a wine lover that beats having a tasting at a winery. Add a barbecue and it is like heaven on earth. Or should we say Paradise, because that's the venue for this event.
Club members Al Ruggiero and Gary Cavaliere will be our hosts at their winery in Wallinford appropriately named Paradise Hills.
We will try 8 of their award winning wines accompanied by a copious barbecue catered by Pig Rig also of Wallingford.
This should rank as one of the top days in August for Wine Lovers so join the fun.
