Exclusive Tasting of Vina Sympatica’s Sparkling Wines – Tweet and Win Your Own Bubbly!
We’ve got something truly special for attendees of SMCLA’s MEET THE FOODIES Holiday Party – a free tasting of three bold new Vina Sympatica sparkling wine varietals, hosted by creator Sherrijon Gaspard! A perfect way to toast the holiday season, the Vina Sympatica tasting will take place soon after the doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Vina Sympatica has three delicious varietals – Red, White and Violet (the only one of its kind anywhere). Tweet about the tasting, and the person with the most Twitter shares wins a complimentary bottle of bubbly! (Must be 21 or older to participate and must be at the event to win.)
This new sparkling wine – “Nouveau Sparkling” – hails from Southern California, so we’re thrilled at the opportunity to celebrate this local wine-maker and share this special tasting with our SMCLA friends.
