Wine Divas

Most recent event.  On Sunday, January 14, 2018 at the home of Marshall and Betty Kuykendall the Wine Divas held their all-important wine selection event.  This is when they do a blind tasting to select the wines to be presented at Pouring Over Books.  If you or a friend have any interest in supporting the Friends of the Library by becoming a Wine Diva, this event is the premier event to attend.

Recent events.  In October, 2017 Jaime and Doris Molina hosted a recruiting party at their home.  The theme was “the quest for the perfect Malbec,” inspired by Mike Cowell.  We tasted a bunch and the hands down winner was Norton 2014 Malbec Reserva.  We also invited several prospective Divas to join our ranks and a good time was had by all, witness the slide show below.

Become a Wine Diva, it’s easy.  If you or a friend are interested in becoming a Wine Diva all you need to do is Register and pay the $300 sponsorship donation.  Click here to register.    You will be notified of upcoming events beginning in the Fall.  Remember that in addition to the wine selection event for two, a Divas sponsorship includes two tickets to Pouring Over Books, and sponsor recognition in all print materials and on our website.  Your sponsorship recognition will begin immediately after you join, and continue through Pouring Over Books 2019 and beyond.

A little history.  In 2015, a few ladies put their heads together to figure a way to increase support for Pouring Over Books, our annual meet-the-author wine tasting.  Deciding to take on the task of selecting the wines to be presented at the event, they recruited a few of their friends, and the Wine Divas were born.  Having each contributed $300 to become a Wine Diva, with spouses in tow, they gathered on October 15, 2015 to fulfill the awesome responsibility of wine selection. Everyone had a great time, and the wines featured at Pouring Over Books were well received.  The Wine Divas were successfully launched.
