via Zoom Webinar from Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, Virgina

June 9, 2021

2:00–6:00 pm EDT

Join the “Friends of IACET” for our first virtual wine-tasting and exceptional vineyard experience!

Connect with others to enjoy high-quality libations, and discover delicious, hand-selected wines all while supporting the Grover J. Andrews Endowment Fund. These proceeds will continue to support research studies aimed at refining and strengthening standards of good practice in continuing education and training.

About This Experience

“Virginia History.  Virginia Soils.  Exceptional Future.”  This sums up the Stone Tower Winery experience, an exquisite winery located in the heart of Leesburg, Virginia.

Participants will be guided by Stone Tower Sommelier, Sam, through an amazing experience as you indulge in the look, smell, taste, and other characteristics of each unique wine, as well as draw lasting conclusions about each flavor profile. 

When you mix knowledgeable hosts, world class wine, and great conversation, you are guaranteed to have a great time.  But what is the best thing about it?  It is experiencing it from the comfort of your own home as experts talk you through their tasting notes, winemaking process, favorite pairings and more!

Fine wine is never a stand-alone product: it needs carefully chosen vineyards and rigorously equipped cellars for vinification and aging, but more important are the people who bring it into being, who bring beauty to match the efficiency of the buildings in which it evolves to the moment that it is opened and enjoyed. At Stone Tower, the place and people are united to create the product in the most harmonious manner.

Steven Spurrier, Wine Expert & Merchant
