You are cordially invited to Rotaract Blue's second annual Shades of Red wine-tasting event! When: May 8th, 2010 from 6-9PM Where: The Brasserie, located in Cricket Square off of Elgin Avenue.
Shades of Red will be a relaxed, cocktail party allowing guests to experience the tastes of wine from several regions of the world. Carrie Stein of Premier Wines and Spirits, the official sommelier of the evening, has hand-selected the featured wines and she will also be available to provide information on the wine served that evening including history, at home and dining out pairings and where the wines can be purchased. To complement the featured wines, Carrie has worked closely with the culinary team of the Brasserie to select hors d'oeurves which enhance the flavour of the wine to be served at the wine tasting. A cash bar will also be available. During the event, information on HIV/AIDS will be tastefully dispersed ensuring that the evening is entertaining and enlightening. Shades of Red is the most substantial fundraiser that benefits our HIV/AIDS Prevention and Awareness campaign and the Cayman AIDS Foundation's efforts in helping those living with HIV/AIDS and increasing the awareness of the virus in the Cayman Islands. One hundred percent of ticket sales and donations will benefit the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Awareness campaign. Born and raised in Grand Cayman, Carrie Stein grew up immersed in the "wine world" with parents who are wine lovers and owners of the Spanish winery, Piedra, where Carrie spent her school holidays working to improve both her Spanish and her wine knowledge. She completed wine courses in Italy and Spain during her University years and then fulfilled the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Intermediate and Advanced courses in London. She is currently enrolled in the WSET Diploma and will be taking her final exams in June of this year. Carrie worked on the wine team at Jacques Scott for 5 years before venturing out to set up a small business importing and distributing wines in Cayman. Premier Wines and Spirits started trading in November 2009 and seeks to provide high quality, affordable wines to the local market.
