duck.

RAFFLE: For every duck you adopt you get a ticket entered to win a bottle of wine.

 

About the Event: The Rotary Club of Daniel Island and other participating Rotary Clubs in the Charleston area will hold the twelfth annual Charity Duck Race, at Smythe Lake Park on Daniel Island.  Established by the Rotary Club of Daniel Island in 2007, this fundraising event has grown each year since and now includes the following other Rotary Clubs in the greater Charleston area: Johns Island, Mt. Pleasant, North Charleston Breakfast, North Charleston, and the Summerville clubs. This year’s race will be combined with the Daniel Island Property Owners Association’s  “Sounds of Summer” concert, featuring the band Plane Jane.  There will be food trucks, face painters, and balloon artists. Bring the whole family and join in the fun.

The proceeds from this event are used to fund Rotary community service programs locally and around the world. Each of the participating Rotary clubs is designating one or more low country charities as named beneficiaries of the duck race. These charities represent a wide selection of local nonprofit organizations focused on health and wellness, hunger and nutrition, housing and shelter, children and families, and education and literacy. Over the past 11 years, this event has raised over $1,400,000 for local beneficiaries and Rotary projects worldwide.

The Wonders of Wonderment Wine with Winemaker & Owner: Stephanie Cook

The Wonders of Wonderment Wine with Winemaker & Owner: Stephanie Cook

AboutUsImg.jpg

$25

Charleston local Stephanie Cook is in the house! Stephanie is the owner, winemaker and one woman show of Wonderment Wine! She will be pouring 6 of her scoring wines here at Bin 526.

Cheese and Charcuterie will be provided.

Presenter Bio – Born and raised in Leesville, South Carolina, Stephanie began traveling the world as a fashion model, living and working in London, Milan and Istanbul. Landing back in South Carolina, this time in Charleston, she turned her lifelong love of food into a new career, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a culinary degree from Johnson & Wales University. After staging in a restaurant in Milan, she returned to the incredible food, history and beauty of Charleston. Stephanie put her hospitality and entrepreneurial skills to the test, creating and leading the successful special events and catering company, Bridgeside Events, which she later sold.

All the while, her secret dream to become a winemaker waited patiently for its moment. After losing her Dad unexpectedly, the man who made homemade Muscadine wine in the laundry room, it motivated her to make her dream of becoming a winemaker become a reality. Not long after, she met Bob Biale of Robert Biale Vineyards at a industry event in New York City and informed Bob that she was coming to work for him. True to her word, she worked that year's harvest in Napa, soaking up every bit of knowledge she could.

In 2011, she bought her own grapes and made her first Pinot Noir and two Zinfandels. In 2012, she continued honing her skills at Spottswoode, a family wine estate in St. Helena. And, fell ever more in love with winemaking. In 2013, she was the senior intern at Anomaly Vineyards working with acclaimed winemaker Mark Porembski. In spring of 2014 Stephanie decided to go down under to New Zealand, specifically to Marlborough and spend 8 weeks in the role of Vintage Winemaker for Spy Valley Wines. During the 2014 Napa/Sonoma harvest Stephanie worked harvest at Staglin Family Vineyard with winemaker Frederik Johansson. The rest, as they say, is history - or, as we like to say, a balancing act.

Must be 21+ to attend. This class size is limited to 30 attendees.

Sign up is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Patrick will be tasting through one of the most renowned wine regions in the world, Burgundy. Cheese and Charcuterie will be provided.

About Patrick Emerson: An Englishman by birth, Advanced Sommelier Patrick Emerson grew up making elderberry/apple wine with his Mom, brewing ale with his Dad and drinking cheap Bordeaux with his mates at an early age. A renaissance man who was once bitten by the Thespian bug that led to many hours of working behind the stick in Cape Town, New York and LA at all hours of the night, Patrick finally saw the light and traded in his greasepaint and tap shoes for that of Wine Warrior. He now thrives by pursuing his passion of the vine (more practical than treading the boards for his family) and has enjoyed fine vino for over 20 years. Favorite regions include Burgundy, Champagne, Jura, and Piedmont.

Must be 21+ to attend. This class size is limited to 30 attendees.

Sign up is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Presenter Bio –  Weston’s great-grandfather, John Montagu, was an automobile pioneer at the turn of the last century. Being a British Lord and in Parliament, he was instrumental in much of the early automotive legislation and even gave the future Edward VII his first car ride. He was friends with Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, and his secretary served as the model for the Rolls-Royce hood ornament – The Spirit of Ecstasy – which we still see on R-R cars today. Silver Ghost derives its name from John Mantagu’s favorite car – the 1909 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost. And, like its name, the wine itself is filled with layers of richness, culture and authenticity.
