WINE WITH FRIENDS 2020 Home Edition …because you can’t keep a good event down!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the Friends of Sims Library will be presenting its annual Wine with Friends in a different format this year.   While it will not be possible to meet for the traditional tasting at Sims Library, the Friends are offering two packages of the wines and cheeses you will need to host your own small tasting during the holidays, or to enjoy at your leisure. 

The first package consists of two bottles of wine, a “Lago” Cerqueira Rose’ 2019 from Portugal and a red La Fiera Montpulciano d'Abruzzo 2017, and an assortment of cheeses in a reusable canvas bag. The package costs $50. The second package adds a red Jardim da Estrela 2017 from Portugal along with a bottle of Kentwood Yulupa Brut sparkling wine and an assortment of cheeses and chocolates, and costs $100.

Each participant will be given a link to a video featuring this year's partners for the event, Todd Delaune, owner of The Red, White and Brew, and Ashley Pequet, owner of The Rind Cheese Shop and Catering, who will talk about the wines and cheeses and no doubt add some sparkle to your own private wine tasting. 

All orders must be purchased by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1

Wine and cheese packages will be available for pick-up in Hammond on Thursday, December 10.  Pick-up information will be sent out after orders are placed.   Participants living in Hammond or Ponchatoula will also have the option of home delivery for an additional $5.00.  

This year, proceeds from Wine with Friends will be used to purchase additional tech devices such as laptops, chrome books, headphones, webcams, chargers, hotspots, etc., for student use as the University has moved to online learning due to the pandemic. 

For additional information and payment options, please email or call Janie Branham at (985) 549-2186.
