Steve and wife Donna are involved in special event planning such as Wine Dinners with area restaurants. We also specialize in private events that can be held in your home or business location.  Birthday dinners, wine tastings, choosing wines for special occasions such as engagements or bridal receptions, wine education and other events are an integral part of our wine business.

Wine tastings are held each Friday evening from 5 - 7 p.m. at the Wine Store.  Cost is $ 5 per person, with your $ 5 refunded on the purchase of a bottle of wine.

Monday, April 21 - Golf/Lunch/Wine Tasting

"TWO NINES AND WINE" as named by Roberto of Espana fame - a trio of golf, followed by lunch and a wine tasting with local Restaurateurs and Winery people.

Some of those playing golf are Tim Seyda - Bar Zin,
Roberto - Espana, Bill Mertens & Zach Raszkin - Gourmet Gourmet, Joe Parrish - Courtyard Pub, Michael Parker - Beef O'Brady -  just to name a few.

Shotgun / scramble beginning at 8 a.m.

Golf teams include you along with a local Restaurateur or Winery Representative.  Lunch and wine tasting following golf.  Located at Omni Plantation.  And, if you choose not to play golf but would enjoy lunch and the wine tasting, you can do that as well.  Steve can give you details on times and costs of that.

We know there are as many lady golfers as men golfers out there so we hope you take advantage of this day as well.  Also, there are Restaurateur's there for the luncheon and tasting who are not playing golf, so there will be a great mixture of folks.

Lunch and wine tasting only is $ 30 per person.  $ 60 per person for golf, lunch and wine tasting. The wineries are 'chipping' in so your cost is lowered.  Call Steve to make your reservations now!
