REF NO.: 254

SUBJECT: Italy Uncorked!

DATE: April 6

The St. John's Memorial University Alumni Chapter presents its fifth Annual Wine-Tasting Evening. This year we are showcasing the fine wines of Italy. Italy’s climate, soil, and ancient cultures make it a natural choice for those who appreciate wine. You’ll feel like you’re in a tasting room in Tuscany as host, 1983 Alumnus of the Year and past-president, Dr. Arthur May guides you through the evening.   This year’s premier selection includes Tuscany’s Banfi Summus and Veneto’s Placido Pinot Grigio.
The event also features an excellent vintage, musically speaking. Performers from Memorial’s School of Music will present an evening serenade.
