The May Chapter Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at the Twenty-Two Gallery at 236 South 22nd Street in Philadelphia. The Board of Directors will meet at 5:30 pm. The general meeting beginning at 6:30 pm will feature a Spanish Wine Tasting and Tapas/Hors D ’Oeuvres hosted by Vinocity founder, Vicki Miller. The Gallery will be exhibiting the paintings and drawings of Philly activist/artist Caryn Kunkle.
Vicki Miller left the prestigious law firm of Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP, where she was a partner, to launch Vinocity and a new career hosting wine events that combine “Wine education and tasting in a lively interactive experience.” An engaging host and speaker, Vicki weaves the facts, figures and science of winemaking into stories about wine history and culture that she connects to the wines sampled during Vinocity events.
The Spanish Wine Tasting at Twenty-Two Gallery will include four Spanish wines, a Cava, a Albariño, a Spanish rosé and a Rioja Reserva, starting with glass of wine offered at the door, with the others during the course of the evening, whilst sampling Tapas and a variety of heavy hors d’oeuvres..
