OVERVIEW
Los Angeles Chapter members are invited join us for a social event on December 9th, which will run for about two hours. In the first hour, we will have a wine tasting and some history about winemaking presented by Hoyt Family VineyardsTheir slogan is “Our Wines Pair Best with Friends,” making these wines the perfect choice for our holiday event. Our co-host for this portion of the event will be Gail Sherman who is the owner of Wine Lovers Travel, which is a company that partners with wineries to host international wine travel as well as private virtual tastings. 

For the wine segment of the event, winemaker Carol Hoyt will walk us through a number of wine tastings from Hoyt Family Vineyard, which is located in the acclaimed Willow Creek AVA of Paso Robles. Carol, originally from New York, was a successful model and actress (Carol will share her most well-known acting role, and you’ll be surprised!). Her family moved to Malibu where she planted a Chardonnay vineyard and became a self-taught winemaker. The Chardonnay was such a success that Carol wanted to expand and purchased a large property in Paso Robles. Today, with Carol as winemaker, Hoyt Family Vineyards grows many varieties, and Carol carefully crafts small batch wines with her distinctive personal touch.

Prior to the event, you will receive a tasting flight of 5 estate grown wines, including Viognier, Rose, Chardonnay, Cabernet, and their exclusive Dylema red blend. Each bottle is 50ml, which is just shy of 2 ounces and is designed for 1 person, same as you would be poured in a tasting room. Our sponsors will be underwriting the cost for the wine, so it is complementary to our members. 

In the second hour, we will have some friendly introductions, so that our members can become more acquainted. Each attendee will be allowed 5-7 minutes to tell us about themselves and their business.

We hope you can join us for this very special social event. 

THANK YOU TO OUR NATIONAL AND GOLD CHAPTER SPONSORS!
