minimo Women’s March/Wine Tasting Fundraiser

January 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0



On Saturday, January 19th (the day all Women’s Marches for 2019 are set to happen), minimo, a retail wine shop in Jack London, will open at 1:00pm for a special winemaker tasting and fundraiser, featuring local superstar Laura Brennan Bissell of INCONNU with a guest appearance by MISSSEY’s Executive Director, Jennifer B. Lyle, who is also a featured speaker at this year’s Women’s March Oakland.

Laura was named one of the San Francisco Chronicle’s 2017 “Winemakers to Watch!” The tasting will feature 3 of Laura’s wines: her new release of the Bordeaux-style blend ‘Kitsune,” Lalalu Rosé of Mourvèdre, and a vintage 2014 INCONNU Cabernet Franc. The tasting will run from 1:30-7pm, with Laura Brennan Bissell and Jennifer B. Lyle present from 2-5pm.

Please come join us for this special event after Women’s March Oakland, help support the phenomenal work of MISSSEY, meet a winemaker whom we love dearly, and continue the conversations of the day.
