The Vine: Chillin’ the Reds
Mar 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

chillin the reds

Some rules are made to be broken…

Everyone knows you’re only supposed to chill white wine and not red, right?  Tonight, we break the rules with chilled reds that are crisp, high-acid, and simple enough that you can drink them without worrying about whether you’re tasting black pepper or tobacco smoke.  A chilled light red is like your favorite white shirt: easy, elegant, and unexpectedly cool.

Come find out how to make these chilled reds part of your entertaining throughout the spring and summer while enjoying time with friends at The Vine.
