Three Don't-Miss Local Wine Events in January

​Sure, sipping at home in your pajamas might be comfy and cozy, but it's also a little boring (and you call yourself a wino!).  Half the fun in wine is the education and the complexities. And in order to expand your knowledge and palate, you've got to put yourself out there and get to know your fellow winos. Don't worry; we've got your January calendar covered with the latest and greatest local wine events.
