The Lakewood Ranch Wine Club was founded and run by its members to facilitate the exploration of the world of wine in a comfortable, unintimidating manner.
Each month one of our members will select and procure wines and will present those wines with brief descriptions and anecdotes about the vineyards and the winemaker’s crafts. Occasionally the Wine Vendor for the selected wines will be our guest speaker and present us with some history of that wine.
We generally sample five different wines and our wines are complimented with fresh baked French bread and a variety of cheeses.
We strongly believe that wine should be approachable and fun. By hosting a variety of tastings and coordinating wine-related events, we aim to provide education to the novice wine person as well as provide new wine experiences to more seasoned drinkers.
We recognize that events should be not only opportunities to learn about wine but should also be fun occasions to socialize with friends and others in the Lakewood Ranch community. We want to encourage Wine Club participants to discuss and explore wines, share their impressions, and also very importantly, enjoy themselves.
The LWR Wine Club meets at the Lakewood Ranch Town Hall on the third Friday of each month from October through April.
