Vines and Steins” will be held on Friday, November 2, at 6:30 p.m. at the Milford Yacht Club, 131 Trumbull Ave., Milford.
Learn about wines and boutique beers from experts in the field—the nuances of flavors that go into each wine or lager, and even the wine/ale-making processes.

And while you’re sipping your chardonnay, pick up culinary tips from the “The Sensational Singing Chef”, Neil Fuentes.
In addition to cooking demonstrations, Celebrity chef Neil Fuentes will entertain guests throughout evening with his singing and dancing talents.
