PIQUA - The Friends of the Piqua Public Library are presenting “Bubbles in a Bottle” at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 12, at the library, as part of its Library Lounge Series. Julia Benkert of Love 2 Wine Parties will share information about (and give tastes of) a variety of sparkling wines from all over the world.
Julia Benkert is a serious wine enthusiast who loves nothing more than introducing people to the joys of wine appreciation. Benkert holds a Wine Spirits Education Trust Certification in wine expertise, and has facilitated events and tastings of both large and small groups. She frequents seminars and professional tastings to increase her knowledge of the wine experience.
Benkert says, “Wine tasting should be fun, educational, and enjoyable, but never intimidating,” and she would like to introduce event goers to one of her favorite varieties, sparkling wines, in an evening that promises to be unique, fun-filled, and “snob free.”
The wines will be provided by Jerardi’s Little Store in Dayton, Ohio. The event is free and open to the public, and only for those over the age of 21. Please join us in the lobby of the Piqua Public Library at 116 W. High St, on September 12th at 7:00 PM. Light refreshments and door prizes will be provided.
