April Wine Tasting Event

WineDesign  Join us along the Rhine for a delightful presentation by Mike Gasser, owner of “Wine & Design”, a charming wine boutique near the Mittlere Brücke and the Schifflände tram stop. Mike’s mother, Kate, has been a member of the AWC for forty-three years and we’d love to show some support for her son’s new venture! Mike’s focus on European wines is certain to introduce us to wines we may not have previously enjoyed. We’ll have a few nibbles with the wine, but it’s best if you have your evening meal prior to the tasting. Please RSVP to Candy at candyarbour@hotmail.com.  April 9,  7pm, Rheinsprung 1, 4051 Basel. Cost is 30CHF per participant
