Wine Club, 1st meeting

My friend Lynn decided it would be a wonderful idea to start a wine club amongst her friends. The idea was to bring a bottle of wine with you to share with the group and provide a small fee to help the hostess pay for the food provided. Of course it wouldn’t be a wine party without cheese!

Of course the men were invited to join and most even tried the wine. Although they had to be men and segregate themselves. Ha
