[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.
