At the last Saturday Afternoon Wine Tasting at Sheehan Winery, there were 50 friends who showed up to taste and to buy wine. It was like a party in the backyard! Not everyone knew each other, but they were all friends by the time it ended. The wine tastings start at 2 p.m. and end about 4 p.m. so it is a great, fun opportunity to taste great-quality New Mexican wines, meet founder and winemaker Sean Sheehan and his lovely staff of servers, and meet a bunch of new people too.

Many people who show up end up being such fans, they volunteer to harvest grapes at the end of the summer (in Southern New Mexico, the harvest will start in about two weeks) and many have signed up to join the Wine Club. Many are also pumped about attending the Diner en Blanc. Why don't you make plans to join us on August 12. It's fun and the tastings are free!
