Wisdom and Wine is an adult faith formation event that allows adults to come together in a
relaxed atmosphere for social time and spiritual development. Attendees are invited to participate in engaging discussion following the presentation on a current Catholic topic. We begin the evening with a Fair Trade Wine Discussion and wine pours. Appetizers, desserts, fair trade dips, coffee served.
Wine growers in developing countries can now rely on stable incomes
to provide for their families, pay workers fairly, and provide working
environments that are safe and free from child labor, forced overtime and
harassment. We will begin the night discussing this topic and sharing four
different Fair Trade and certified, sustainable wines from South Africa,
Chile and New Zealand.
