Yelp Honolulu Elites whipped out their wine tasting skills for an evening of DIY wine bottling at the "Grapes of Yelp" Elite event at Wine The Experience! 60+ yelpers came out to get squishy and were treated to a wine flight of four wines, all made in-house by Wine The Experience.
Yelpers worked for their wine and put in some sweat equity by helping to bottle the signature Grapes of Yelp wine. Shannon Ball, owner of Wine The Experience, showed party goers how to bottle wine step-by-step from corking to sealing to adding the beautiful Yelp wine labels. Vintage 2010 baby!
Party goers were enthralled by the wine charm station where guests strung multi-colored beads and made their very own cleverly crafted wine charms. And yes, this was part of the evening's sobriety test!
All that work can sure make a yelper hungry (so what else is new?), and luckily neighboring restaurant India Cafe was on hand with delicious Indian dishes to satiate the appetites of ravenous party goers. Samosa anyone? The night only got yummier as guests sampled gourmet olive oils and balsamic vinegars from Bistro Blends.
At the end of the evening, lucky Yelp Elites even got to take home their very own bottle of Grapes of Yelp wine! Hold on to it because it's sure to be a collectible someday!
Aloha & SYOY!
