SAVE THE DATE: January 23, 2015 Confrerie Induction Dinner
2014 is looking good and there is excitement in the SF Confrerie Chapter! We already have 4 potential new members that will hopefully be inducted in January (2015). The excitement is growing for our society!! Let's keep spreading the word to our family, friends, and colleagues who love wine, meeting new people and trying new wineries. The more the merrier I always say!
All new candidates will be initiated during our annual St.Vincent dinner that is held every January. If you know of any interested people let me know and I will send them the membership forms so that we ensure they are ready to be initiated!!
Let's make this an exciting, fun-filled society and bring in new members.
Welcome to our new San Francisco Chapter Inductees:
