PRE-SHOW WINE TASTING VIA ZOOM
To Access the Virtual Wine Tasting, CLICK HERE
We invite you to join us via Zoom for a virtual VIP pre-gala wine tasting. Andrew Kienle, Consulting Sommelier with Vine Society, will deliver a memorable, interactive experience. Having passed that first level examination with the Court of Master Sommeliers, Kienle works with Vine Society clients to develop and deliver intimate, educational and exceptional wine based experiences including tastings, dinners, and educational events. When not serving, tasting and talking wine, Andy is an attorney based in Indianapolis.
As a gold sponsor attendee you should have received a gift wine in your party swag bag which was delivered to your sponsor's workplace the week of 9/28. The gift wine is to be used during the virtual tasting. Gold sponsor attendees not gathering in small groups may purchase the additional tasting wines at area specialty wine shops such as Kahn's Fine Wines and Spirits. However, this is not necessary to enjoy the tasting. The tasting will focus on different types of wines and the best food pairings.
