  • Wine Tasting Clubhouse After-hours
    Wine Tasting Clubhouse After-hours
    Back by popular demand, we are hosting another wine night!! After a long year filled with isolation, chaos and crazy, who couldn't use a little socializing! This virtual wine night is taking the ZOOM call to a whole new level by offering a FUN and exciting way to connect with other parents in the community. This adult-only event is open to our JUNIOR EXPLORER CLUB MEMBERS, friends and family. We have partnered with Georgia Damalas Snograss of Scout & Cellar Wines and Amy Enochs of Amy's Kitchen for a wine tasting and food parings on Friday, March 26, 2021 from 7p - 8p.     Georgia sells “clean- crafted” wine from all over the world, creating and bottling wildly delicious wines with an authentic sense of place, working directly with growers and producers who embody our Clean-Crafted Commitment® in their daily practices. Most people who enjoy wine are unaware of the massive amounts of chemicals and added sugar they are consuming and how harmful they are to us. I work with the ONLY company in the world that partners with vineyards producing wines with ZERO chemicals and ZERO added sugars. We scout the world over to find “clean-crafted” wine which saves you time and allows you to drink wine that is better for you.   Amy Enochs created Amy's Kitchen as a means to supplement her in-home daycare business that suffered as a result of COVID. A mom of 4 with a creative flare for foods, Amy offers a variety of delicious charcuterie boards that are delightful not just to the taste buds but to the eyes. A must-see work of food art, Amy has created boards for everyone from personal parties to corporate large-scale meetings.   Due to COVID, we are limiting spots for the in-house presentation to 5 people and holding a virtual zoom for up to 10 lucky participants. But order fast because last time spot filled up fast! Each guest will receive their own personal wine pours, a charcuterie board, and a live follow along presentation on wine and pairings. We will have all the items you need available for pick-up at the Clubhouse on the day of the wine tasting.
