Join us as we welcome back Mel Sisaithong of Williams Corner Wine for a class perfect for ushering in Autumn! Beaujolais encompasses WAY MORE than “nouveau” — from the light & quaffable to bold, serious Crus & even whites! At Secco we can often be heard to call ‘Boo-Juice’ the most food friendly wine in the world (next to Riesling, of course). Come taste why! Thursday, October 9th, 6-7:30pm. Must be 21 or older at attend.
