What is a winery tasting?
Learning about wine is a fascinating experience, made even better when you can sample several different varietals and seek out what most pleases your palate. Winery Tastings at The Empty Glass are designed to give wine rookies and experts alike, an opportunity to sample a range of wines. The tastings allow you to sample regional and winery specialities, while chatting with a winery representative on the history of the winery and the winemaking process for each varietal. Each tasting is a ton of fun! They're very informative, but also relaxing, and a laid back way to venture out and try new wines. It's a great opportunity to be able to ask questions, learn about food pairings and do something unique with a date or group of friends.

Tracy Hood LIVE @ The Empty Glass, 8-11 PM
Come out and enjoy a live acoustic performance by Tracy Hood of Braid. She puts on an amazing show with her spunky personality, amazing vocal talents and overall stage presence! From classic rock to country to today's top hits, she's sure to please every crowd!
