Newsletter 34: Gonzalez Byass

Well how incredible was that last meeting? I told you we have big plans for the New Year! We were astounded by the full line of sherries and also some very special VORS from Gonzalez Byass, while we learned a bunch from the 5th generation member of the Gonzalez Family, Felipe Gonzalez-Gordon and Mollie Casey from Henry Wine Group. Hosted, for the first time, by the exceptional two40south who also did an amazing job with the food, drinks, service and atmosphere. A fantastic meeting for sure!
