Wine is produced around the World in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, in the Old World and the New World. But only a select few wines come from unique and isolated regions as the Island Wines. We will sample wines from Sicily, Sardinia, Madeira, Canary Islands, New Zealand, Tasmania and MORE.

It's all about geography, since islands are surrounded by water, they invariably have cool night time temperatures, which helps retain acidity, while if the latitude is right, they also receive plenty of sun to develop plenty of flavor, be it fruit, mineral, or whatever the grape and soil dictate.

This is the perfect place for wine beginners to learn about wine and why it can be a life long, enjoyable experience. Experienced wine lovers can also benefit by using this evening to brush up on their wine knowledge and tasting skills. There is always something to learn about wine. The Beanery Cafe will serve an assortment of appetizers with the wines. All wines are served in Riedel stemware. No product purchase is required. You do not have to be a member of the Northern Lights Wine Club to attend any wine event at the Beanery Cafe.
