STUDY GROUPS 2019-2020

Bacchae

The Bacchae study group met on October14 at Fran Bentkowski’s and Jeanne Eroh’s house. This year we are adjusting the timing of some of our meetings to earlier in the day, 4 PM. When the days get shorter and several of our members will become “snowbirds,” and we will meet on Zoom as we did last year at our “normal ” time of 7 PM. Last week we rated and tasted two wines from Vynecrest in Breinigsville, a Pinot Grigio, and one of their specialty wines, Cherry Divyne, which is divine with chocolate! The next meeting is on November 11 at 4 PM at Myra Jones’ house with JoAnn Kelly as co-hostess.

This year we are focusing on wines from PA and NY.
