Last Meeting

The program for our November monthly meeting featured that Wine Purveyor Extraordinaire Mr. Dave Luce, who led us on a sojurn tasting some selected exceptional wines for the holidays. Dave brought us a selection of the best values that he has to offer. Dave presented us with an opportunity to purchase wines in case lots at or below wholesale.

A very good time was had by all.
