May Wine Club

Hello Balcones Woods Wine Clubbers,

Zoe Ann Heep  will be hosting our May Wine Club on Saturday, May 20TH  and the theme is Garden Party,  French Whites, Rose’s & Sparkling. Please bring a side or dessert to compliment the Taco Bar,  Zoe Ann will be serving.  Dress cool & comfortable to sit outside and enjoy Zoe Ann’s lovely yard.

This is the time of year to start thinking about drinking lighter more refreshing wines for our hot summer months.  French Whites have a lighter flavor than most American Whites.  And Rose’ Wines are in bloom all over, with great prices on this nice alternative to a regular White.  And how can you possibly go wrong with a French Sparkling.  French Beaujolais is a nice light Red for the summer months also.  Plenty of varieties and selections to choose from.

Remember to bring a wine glass to this event.

For more info or the address contact Jeannie or Zoe Ann.
