Saturday Wine Tasting at Wellsburg Elks | News, Sports, Jobs
The Tri-State Winemaker’s Club met May 12 at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Steubenville with 15 attendees. The business meeting was followed by a taco dinner provided by Okey and Sondra Nestor and Bill and Elizabeth Shipe for a late Cinco de Mayo celebration. Other members provided side dishes, desserts and each other’s house wine. The club held a wine tasting in April, the first since the pandemic began. It was sponsored by the Weirton Lions Club and hosted by the Weirton American Legion post. The club explores opportunities for future wine tastings and tasting events at local wineries and encourages members to bring friends interested in winemaking to meetings. The club will be offering wine tasting for the Wellsburg Elks Club in Wellsburg on Saturday from 6-9 p.m. The next club meeting will be at the Garden Grill in Weirton. Regular meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, located at 300 S. Fourth St., Steubenville.
