APRIL 13th @ 7PM
Presented by: Tom Holton

Napa Valley is the most recognizable and best known wine region in the United States.  Why are Napa wines so highly praised?  Should we pay hundreds of dollars for a single bottle of famous Napa wine?  

We will look deep into that esteemed area, taste some expensive “cult “ Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays from North to South, from floor to mountain, to determine for ourselves that old question…Are big dollar wines better than the affordable ones? We’ll be joined by AWS member and wine educator Tom Holton of the Wine Merchant.

The Electric City Chapter is absorbing much of the cost of this premium tasting for Chapter members by keeping the meeting fee to $10.  Guests will be $20. 




If you feel like a wine and food pairing, check the calendar of Carmens 2.0 at the Radisson at Lackawanna Station Hotel for the first Friday of the month. The restaurant is doing wine tasting dinners with Tom Holton.  As usual, you can always catch Tom at Posh Restaurant on N. Washington Ave. in Scranton the first Wednesday of the month for wines and small bites.

AWS members always receive a 20% discount on wines by the glass or bottle at AV Restaurant in Moosic, an AWS professional member with a great wine list—including wines by the glass.





    We will have carriers and glasses to distribute to anyone who has not yet received them.  If you forget your glasses there will be a $2 rental fee which will be donated to the Joe Nardelli Scholarship Fund.
