Wines Paired to (dare I say it...) Menopause!

Confession #1: I love putting together quirky pairings that make understanding wine easy & fun.

Confession #2: I put myself out there and often say to folks, "Hey, give me some adjectives describing people, places & things and we'll pair a wine to it. Anything you want".

Well, a good friend who organizes a MeetUp group of Gals around 45, wanted a very interesting wine pairing tasting and I decided to be up for the challenge! That group will have about half a dozen here.

Come join the fun for a 5 wine flight paired to (dare I say it...) major symptoms of menopause!!!
