[Thank you Ken for organizing this event for all.  I am excited to participate – John Bischoff]

Harvest Moon Homage Invitation  Please OPEN and READ this pdf……


On behalf of the board of Knights of the Vine-Lodi Chapter (KOV-Lodi), I am sending you the attached invitation. As a board member of KOV-Lodi and a member of LAVA, I have been surprised at how few members of each organization were familiar with the other.   The was created to bring the respective memberships of each group together for a night of socializing and to learn about what each organization does. The event has been well received by the boards of LAVA and KOV-Lodi.

The Harvest Moon Homage will be held at Macchia Winery on Thursday, September 11th from 6-8 pm. As you stroll about the beautiful grounds of Macchia, you will enjoy the camaraderie along with tastings of 14 wines from LAVA members paired with 14 gourmet bites prepared by KOV-Lodi members.   Sponsors are paying for the event, so the recommended $10 ticket donation will go, entirely, to the 4H Foundation.   For every $10 ticket donation you make, John and Gail Kautz, the founders of Ironstone Vineyards and Winery and members of KOV-Lodi, will give you a $20 ticket to the Ironstone Concours d’ Elegance – up to a maximum of 4 tickets.

A special “thank you” goes out to Tim and Lani Holdener of Macchia Winery.   Tim is a founding member of LAVA and their daughter, Tanya, is a member of KOV-Lodi. They have agreed to host the event, complimentary, because they value what each organization does for Lodi’s wine community.

The event will be a lot of fun. Feel free to bring a friend or family member along with you – especially if he or she is a prospective member for either group. Please note that RSVPs are due by August 31st. If you have questions, feel free to contact me by email or by calling 209-663-8834.

Thank you,

– Ken Levy
