to leave the house. Join
us for a country drive to Athens, wine and hors d'oeuvre reception at a
turn-of-the-previous-century home, lunch and win-tasting the Tara Vineyard and
Winery. Our reception will be at the former home of Clint Murchison Sr.
His son Clint Jr. owned the Dallas Cowboys which won two Super Bowls during the
Tom Landry era. The house was moved in several pieces from Downtown Athens to the winery and now serves
as an inn. After the reception, we will enjoy lunch
at the winery, making our selections from a group menu which will be specially
prepared for us by Executive Chef Brian Kirksey. After lunch, we will do a tasting of
5 wines at the winery's barrel room, and have an opportunity to purchase some of
their highly-regarded wines. The event
fee of $25 per member ($35 per nonmember) includes the wine and hors d'oeuvre
reception and the 5-wine tasting. Pay for your own lunch. See below to
sign up and pay the event fee.
NOTE: We may experience some wait time for lunch as we anticipate a large group, and everything will be prepared fresh only after you order. This should not be an issue as we will have the hors d'oeuvre reception before lunch.
