Thank you to Pfeifer Realty Group for sponsoring our 2022-2023 Porch & Patio Series!

Our “Perfectly Paired” wine tasting and food pairing series is one of our most popular events. Usually a coursed, small plate food pairing, this year we are offering a modified version with tasty appetizer options from a local caterer with a more relaxed “mingling” vibe. Calli Johnson of Bailey’s/Island Store brings a lively and educational experience about the wine and parings. Come sip, learn, and socialize! (These are ticketed events and preregistration is required.)

Dates and descriptions will be posted soon.

Thank you to The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company for sponsoring our Perfectly Paired Wine Tasting series for the 2022-2023 season!
