Alumni Wine Tasting

A wine tasting with friends from your own couch.

Date: September 26, 2020 - September 26, 2020
Time: 5-6:30 p.m.
Location: Online

Join us via Zoom for a wine tasting with a guest sommelier. We will share a list of four wines widely available so you're prepared to settle in to taste and learn about great wines. Pajamas and couch optional - we won't judge.


You're welcome to purchase all wines, or even just a few from the list below. Sommelier Donna Schlosser-Long will review each wine, its origin, and interesting notes about it (see Donna's bio below).

What you'll need:

  • Wine wine glasses! 

    1.  Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay

    2.  Matanzas Creek Sauvignon Blanc

    3.  Siduri Pinot Noir

    4.  Cabernet Sauvignon Freemark Abbey is a $40 bottle or they can choose Arrowood Cab which is around $24. She will showcase both so people can buy one or both.

  • An open mind to try new wines.
  • Fisher gear - if you're wearing or displaying Fisher gear, you'll be entered to win prizes (do you like wine baskets?)! Take a selfie, post it, tag us, or email
  • Paper and pen to take notes.
