Wine Information
 

Recommended Value Wines:
As we continue to do, we will list about ten value wines with each newsletter. These are wines from around the world that are readily available in many markets, are rated by some “expert” as being at least 88 points (out of 100) and which cost $20 USD or less. We would appreciate any additions suggested by any member. We feel that no matter what type of wine you enjoy, you ought to be able to find a good one at a reasonable price.

What's happening...

Throughout the year there are many wine events that may be of interest to our members. We encourage members to let us know of an event in their area.  Many Rotary Clubs are involved with the wineries for Rotary events, Fellowship or special  fundraisers..  We have a special area of our website to list these events.


The folks behind this Fellowship...

As you know there are many opportunities to join various Rotarian Fellowship groups worldwide.  Well like any group someone has to take charge and put it all together.   Take a closer look at our Executive Committee.
