The Stewards of the Cove program is starting its 17th year. Thanks to our very dedicated volunteers, our streams, wetlands, beach, and grounds continue to look fabulous. We love our long-time volunteers, but we welcome and need new faces. Please join us this year at the Cove and enjoy some stewardship togetherness with your neighbors. We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month, March thru October from 9:00 a.m. – noon. Come for morning coffee donated by Starbucks and perhaps a pastry or two. Stay for a light lunch at noon.

Kirkland vs. Brand Names
Wednesday, October 12
6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. - $35 per person
The #1 Wine Retailer in the USA is (drum roll please) …COSTCO! Yes, Costco. Not only do they sell brand names for a lower price (most of the time), but they also have, over the years, expanded their Kirkland branded wine program (their proprietary labels). I have been watching this program fairly closely over the years. It was some 10 years ago I spoke with someone from Costco who indicated that their intention was to be the #1 Wine Retailer in the USA, and as mentioned, they now are! Where else can you buy wines from premiere wine regions for under $20, or even less than $10!
But are they any good? Well, I’m going to give you the opportunity to judge for yourself! We will look at 4 different Kirkland wines against 4 corresponding brand name wines from the same region, all brown bagged to prevent judging based on the labels. This is always a fun exercise, and pretty humbling whether you are a novice or an experienced wine afficionado!
We’ll talk about the regions represented, and some of the nuances of buying wine at Costco. Hope to see you there!
