Rochester Winos: We are the Wine club of Rochester. This is afun group of people gathering to pair wine and food. Hosting these events are: Rochester Winos' Founder, Vincenzo Raffaele-Addamo (Enzo) and his lovley wife Janice Raffaele-Addamo (Jan). It all started for the love of making and tasting various wines with food and close friends. We continue to be amazed by different wines from all over the world by their flavors and bouquet. We believe wine tasting should be fun and a learning experience and you do not have to be a wine expert to enjoy it.
Join us in becoming anoenophileof wine or what many people call a "wino".
Your Club Host
The wine club will have a monthly event (typically) the last Wednesday of every month at a restaurant in the Rochester area. We will have wine and food pairings at each event. The wines you will be tasting will be from all parts of the world that have been chosen by our professional staff or reviewed by wine snobs.
We will have a special guest speaker at each event to assist in your "Wino Education".
Periodically we will host a beer tasting as a special event from micro breweries in the USA. These events will posted on the web site or emailed to our list when the dates are known.
