TVWS Holds Their Annual Sparkling Wine Christmas Party


12Dec2012_1a_TVWS_Christmas_Stage_DecorOn the evening of December 12, the Treasure Valley Wine Society held their Annual Sparkling Wine Christmas Party. There were close to 40 people who attended and it was great to see those numbers! The food was great again, Chef Jake, as were the sparkling wines. Six wines were presented that pared extremely well with the buffet that was prepared for us.

A special Pinot toast was on the program for Tom Birch, who passed away last month. The annual election of Board members was held and we look forward to working with the new Board of Directors for 2013 starting at the January Board meeting.

A HUGE Thank-You must go out to Melissa and Toni for a great job with the program. Here are some photos that were taken and the wines that were presented. Left-Click any of the photos to see a larger view.
