What’s November without the Decatur Wine Festival? Exactly.
No festival? No problem.
This year we’re bringing the wine tasting to your place . . . via Zoom.
All you have to do is buy your ticket, pick up your kit (scroll down) and relax in front of your favorite screen on Nov. 17 at 7 pm. We’ll take care of the rest, with an online tasting led by a master winemaker along with insights and tips for picking the best wines for your Thanksgiving feast. Of course, you must be 21 or older to purchase.
Tickets are $75 per kit. Here’s what you get: Two bottles of wine from the R. Stuart & Co. Winery (Big Fire Pinot Gris, Big Fire Pinot Noir), and a special cocktail, the Do Rum Rum, mixed up by Independent Distillery. (Ingredients: Independent barrel-aged rum, demerara syrup, Bittermens Tiki Bitters, Peychauds bitters, and lemon)
Add-ons! For those of the “more wine is always better” persuasion, add on the Wine Lovers Bundle ($50): one bottle each of Love, Oregon Chardonnay, + Love, Oregon Pinot Noir.
Proceeds benefit the Decatur Arts Alliance and our mission to support and cultivate the arts in the City of Decatur.
More about our speakers: Winemaker Rob Stuart of R. Stuart & Co. in McMinnville, Oregon will present the featured wines. We will also hear from Casey Teague of Decatur-based Independent Distillery and Herb Chereck of local favorite Decatur Package Store, a long-time sponsor of the Decatur Wine Festival.
