Winekeepers

What is Wine Keepers?

Wine Keepers was founded in May 2008 by 3 women who were enjoying a piece of chocolate while watching Ugly Betty.  Inspired by the chocolate, a bottle of Sherry Crema Cask Three from Galleano Winery was brought out.  The pairing was delicious and the decision was made that we should get together on a regular basis to discover wines and try our hand at the culinary arts.  Today the group has grown to 8 wonderful women — none who fancy themselves experts – but all who know a good thing when they try it!
