Haskell's 2024 Summer Wine Events

Featured Image

Maybe you didn’t make it to the Catalina Wine Mixer this year, and a wine tour through the South of France is out of the budget, but lucky for you, we here at Haskell’s have some great wine events that are much closer (and much more affordable!). 

Gather your friends, a designated driver, and a sense of adventure, and we will have you asking about terroir, vintage, tannins, and body in no time. Or, if you’re just looking to sip some delicious juice and to have a good time without the snooty pretenses, this list is for you!
