September 15th Seminar
- Jackalope Grill
- 4:00-6:00 (Arrive 15 min. early.)
On Monday, September 15, Women Tasting Wine will feature wines from Veneto, Italy, presented by Lance Steffen of Vinum Distribution. Located in Northeast Italy, near the Austrian border, and one of the three regions making up the Tre-Venezie, Veneto is most famous for its city of love, Venice. In the wine world, Veneto is the top volume producer in the north of Italy. Several of the major DOCs, or Denominazione di origine controllata ("Controlled designation of origin"), including Soave, Bianco di Custoza, Valpolicella and Bardolino, plus Amarone, are produced here. The beloved sparkling wine Prosecco, while produced all over the country, has its origins and its best expression in the Veneto and is its own DOC.
Join us as we sample some lovely wines from the Veneto area, accompanied by Chef Tim's small culinary creations.
We will meet on Monday, September 15, from 4:00-6:00 at Jackalope Grill, 750 Lava Road. The cost is $45.
To facilitate making your reservation for the September 15 WTW Seminar, we will be accepting credit cards as well as cash or checks (made out to “Women Tasting Wine.”) You can drop off your check at Bend Wine Cellar Thursday or Saturday from 2:00-5:00. (Stop by Saturday and enjoy a complimentary wine tasting.) You can also call Diane (388-7564) with your credit card information. As the menu is a fixed one and not a la carte, please let us know at the time of registration if you have any food allergies. We need to have our final numbers in on the Wednesday before the event for the purpose of ordering the food, so payment needs to be received by Tuesday, September 9.
Remember, reservations are on a first come, first served basis and your payment is your reservation. Since we have to have our “head count” in by Wednesday morning, there will be no refunds for cancellations after 9:00 AM Wednesday, September 10, or for no-shows on the day of the seminar.
We hope to see you in September and at future monthly Women Tasting Wine Seminars!
