5 Reasons to Attend the Fall 2015 Gathering of the Bacchanalian Society of Omaha
Yep, I'm starting with the obvious. There will be wine and lots of it. Each person or team brings a bottle of wine to the event. This year's theme is white blends. During the event, everyone goes around sampling the wines that each person/team brought. Voting takes place and winners are awarded with prizes......wine!
