WineSmith and Vinifera event with Vision cellars

My friend Neil Smith, owner of Ashburn's WineSmith, will be doing in-store tasting this evening, followed by a special event with the winemaker at Vinifera in Reston. Here are the details:

Vision Cellars owner / winemaker Mac McDonald will be in the WineSmith store on Friday, June 20th from 5:00 - 7:00. Mac makes some of the finest Pinot Noirs (and some outstanding white wines, too) in California.

Once our in-store tasting is over we’ll be heading over to Vinifera, the wine bar inside the new Westin Hotel in Reston, to continue the evening with Mac. We hope you’ll join us for this event, which will feature a flight of Mac’s wines (different from what we will be tasting in the store earlier that evening), small plates prepared by the chef of Vinifera, and live jazz! The cost will be $25 per person, and glasses of wine will also be available for purchase. Please call the store at (703) 729-2970 to RSVP.

It's sure to be a great event!
