July Wine in the Wind: Summer Wines Great for Dining
July 10, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$109.00
Join us for a three hour sail around the Bay sampling wonderful wines. A special guest from one of the wineries will introduce you to these special wines. Nigel Sowman, Dog Point Vineyard’s Viticulturist from New Zealand will be sailing with us for this wonderful event.
This will be a relaxing sail including 3-oz samples of each of the four wines featured. Along with each wine is a delicious, perfectly paired bite (we call them magnificent morsels) to go with each wine. After the sampling, there will be a small afternoon appetizer buffet that will pair well with any wines you would like to purchase by the glass to enjoy on the rest of your sail. Depart Annapolis at 2:00pm, return at 5:00pm.
Price: $109 per person. Maximum 35 guests.
