An Evening With A Sommelier “Red Wines”
Kicking off our newest event series, An Evening With A Sommelier, we will sample “Red Wines” with our resident Sommelier, Lilla Fulop. This comparative red wine tasting delivers an educational, side-by-side walk through a series of wines. Attendees will sample 6 signature red wines from all around the world: France, Spain, Argentina, Australia, Germany and southern Switzerland. Lilla will guide you through the basic steps of the professional red wine tasting, you will learn the “descriptors and talk” about important terms such as legs and tears. This system of tasting allows people to see, smell, taste and conclude the key components that ultimately determine a wine’s overall flavor and style. We look forward to your joining us to taste, learn and most importantly have fun. Find out more here.

Introduction to DrivenWoman
DrivenWoman is a network for women with ideas and ambition who want to achieve their goals.
Dreams don’t come true because it’s difficult to stick to our own plans.
But imagine if you actually achieved what you always wanted. Launched that business, wrote that novel, made that career change, lived a bigger life – how amazing would that be?
DrivenWoman is a members’ network that helps women define their own success, become accountable to their goals and make dreams happen. We get together once a month to create positive habits and put plans into action, one small step at a time. Find out more here.
