LLL Wine Club  

Wine Club meets on the LAST Thursday of the month at 4:00. For Spring 2021 term it will meet in various locations around Spartanburg County. To register to attend any, or all, of the sessions just add the club to your shopping cart and check out. You must be an Annual Member to participate in the WoCo LLL Wine Club. Participation in the club is free once you join Lifelong Learning at Wofford. Join Now!

Each month our hosts will suggest wines to taste. Please feel free to consult your favorite wine store owner and select something that suits your taste buds and your pocketbook. You do not need to select the same wines our hosts are tasting. Don’t worry about the winery or the year. We want to talk about the flavors of each wine and see if we think the blend is better than the primary varietal. If you can’t find the exact wine suggested select a blend from your favorite wine store and find a varietal the same as the primary component. .
