Join us for a fun and informal evening of wine and food with Shane Finley of Shane Wines. Shane is a local boy done good … hailing from West Bloomington, he left the corporate world behind when he caught the wine bug. As he explains on his website:

“I never intended to become a winemaker. I studied English at the Virginia Military Institute in the tiny hamlet of Lexington, Virginia and afterward moved to New York City to pursue a safe career in business. From my comfortable perch in midtown Manhattan, in a cubicle working for a global insurance company, my destiny ascending the rungs of corporate America seemed assured. However, a copy of Wine for Dummies interceded and became the catalyst for my winemaking career.” Read the rest of Shane’s story.

See the 2009 StarTribune feature article on Shane.

Only 24 seats are available for this special event.
