Green Drinks is Back with a Virtual Wine Tasting on March 4
including birds & music!
TICKET SALES END MARCH 3 AT 10AM!
Welcome back Green Drinkers… sort of! We’re coming back virtually with a little interaction. As we sample and savor great wines with our friends at Great Frogs, we’ll also enjoy learning some fun facts about our invaluable avian friends while listening to fantastic music!
Incredibly, it’s been exactly one year today since our last in-person Green Drinks. How the world has changed. But, let’s have fun!
We’ll send you info about cheeses that you might want to have on hand to enhance your wine tasting experience and links to Great Frogs-curated recipes in case you’d like to cook something for dinner that night that the winemakers have suggested would go with one of the varieties. Each Tasting Kit, for one person, will include four wines–white, rosé, and red–and a Great Frogs souvenir glass.
Wine tasting kit pickup will be at our office, the Annapolis Green House, 92 Maryland Avenue (corner of Maryland Avenue and State Circle), on Wednesday and Thursday from 11 am to 3 pm. You won’t even have to park — just drive by and we’ll hand you your kit or but it in your car trunk if you like — no parking, no contact, no problem!
Our virtual wine tasting will be led by our favorite local sommeliers and vintners from Great Frogs Winery, a Founding One Hundred supporter.
About the evening:
We’ll open with fantastic music by local musician Dan Haas, who just happens to be an incredibly enthusiastic and long-time birder. In fact, he calls himself “a birding musician!”
Have a look at the marvelous bird photos on his Instagram account.
And speaking of birds, we’ll enjoy a talk, “The Birds in the Vineyard,” about the migratory birds that will return to us in spring by Chris Eberly of the Maryland Bird Conservation Partnership. Chris is a renown bird expert and a terrific speaker.
Here’s a description on his talk:
Just like the wines of Great Frogs, Maryland’s birds come in different varietals. And just like these fine wines, there is always a bird (or more) to suit your taste at any moment. Red, White, and Rosé wines can be enjoyed while watching backyard and vineyard birds at any time of the year. I will introduce you to some of the resident and migratory birds found throughout Maryland. This viewing flight is a perfect way to find your favorite birds for any occasion.
At the end of the evening Great Frogs will provide a discount coupon for Great Frogs wine and participants will have a chance to win a full bottle of Great Frogs wine and some other wine-related goodies.
Do encourage your friends and family to join us! Ticket sales will continue until Wednesday at 10 am.
Let’s have fun! We’ll enjoy seeing your faces, even if just in little Zoom boxes!
