January 18 – General Meeting

Guest speaker Darrell Corti shared a mellow evening about wine and wine making and poured a 1968 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that he had made. After describing the wine’s journey, Darrell reversed what he has done for us for many meetings (Darrell’s evaluated hundreds of members’ wines) asking members to critique his wine.

December 14 – Holiday Party

The Club’s last event for 2022 was the Holiday Party when we wined and dined, recognized members for their extraordinary contributions, and supported the Club. See this blog post for more photos.
