Who needs a trip to Napa when PRP Wine International can come to you?!  Grab your friends, family or colleague (in your Covid bubble of course) and join Eric Winters (www.STLwineguy.com) from PRP for a fun and educational virtual wine tasting to support the Women Lawyers Association!  PRP Wine represents small, boutique vineyards from around the world and regularly hosts in-person and virtual wine tastings.  These exclusive wines cannot be found in stores, bars or restaurants! 

With your $100 ticket, you will receive 5 bottles (assortment of styles) of wine shipped to your home or office (value of $180 retail) and hours of fun!  Prior to the event, you will receive suggested food pairing and setup details and at the conclusion of the event the wines will be available for purchase.  Proceeds will benefit the WLA Foundation which supports law student scholarships and the Judicial Portrait Project.  Not a fan of wine?  No problem!  Sign up to join us for $10 and donate whatever additional amount you like!

*To ensure timely delivery the week of the event (via UPS with signature required), the deadline for sign-up for the tasting is November 30th.

We are also hosting a raffle during the wine tasting event, no need to be present to win.  Raffle tickets are 1 for $5 or 5 for $20.  Raffle items will have a value of at least $100.
