Summer Wines with Gretchen Pen (Member hosted)


The warm weather has finally arrived! Time for beach days, pool parties, and backyard BBQ's. The hottest question of the summer is, 'what will you be drinking to stay cool?'.

Indie Alley Member Gretchen Pen has a few ideas for you and none of them end in 'osé'. Don't get us wrong, rosé is always a good choice but let's get beyond the rosé craze and find your new favorite summer wine.

Join Gretchen for an intimate evening of sipping and chatting. She'll present five wines and as we imbibe she'll discuss each wine in depth, including their country of origin, region, farming method, characteristics and food pairings. We're excited to share these off the beaten path wines with you!
