Doors open at 6:30 pm, and tastings will occur until 9:30 pm. The event’s presenting sponsor is Xfinity, and all proceeds will benefit United Way of West Central Connecticut and its partner agencies.
The community is invited to attend this exciting wine tasting fundraiser to sample over 50 wines and spirits, try many delicious hors d’oeuvres and enter to win raffle prizes! This year’s event will also feature a Wine Pull Raffle, sponsored by Tier 1 Real Estate.
