Basignani Winery donates to RFES Stepping Ahead silent auction!

The parade of amazing donations for our Stepping Ahead silent auction (5/31, if you haven't marked it down yet!) continues! Thank you so much to our generous sponsor for the day: Basignani Winery! They are giving you an opportunity to bid on not just a tasting, but an entire tasting party! Below is from their website.
Established in 1986, Basignani Winery Ltd. uses traditional cellar methods and the wines, which are estate grown and bottled, are classically styled and produ...ced.
Our main vineyard is next to the winery tasting room in Sparks and is about 8 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Seyval, Burdin, and Villard. The Seyval, Burdin and Villard make up the Elena blend
The certificate entitles ten (10) people to a wine & cheese pairing at Basignani Winery. The lucky people who win this voucher will learn the history of the Basignani Winery, how wine is made first in the vineyard and then in the bottle. They will then be guided through 4 of our recommended wine & cheese pairings, as well as 4 wine choices of your own.
Pretty amazing, right?! Thank you to Basignani for this very generous gift! #rfessteppingahead2015
In other news, the school supply kits for next year are updated and flyers will be coming home to remind you to order this spring, before 6/30. Look for RFES at!
