About the Spokane Enological Society:

The Spokane Enological Society is a not-for-profit organization governed by an elected 18-member board of directors.  The purpose of the society is to provide its members with opportunities to gain further knowledge and appreciation of wine.  Functions are social and educational, usually centered on tasting, comparing and evaluating wines.

Being a non-profit organization allows us to get a special event license from the Washington Liquor Control Board, which allows us to buy wine at wholesale prices directly from Washington distributors or wineries.  These savings help keep our costs low and are passed along to club members.  The tastings are an exceptional value.

Board Meetings

The SES board meets at 7:00 PM on the second Monday of every month except July and August.  Attendees are asked to provide a bottle of wine and a snack to share.

Location: Southside Community and Senior Center, located at 3151 E 27th Ave, Spokane.

Board meetings are open to club members with prior notice to the President, Claudia Hersey at claudia@thinklakeside.com.

Dues for new membership are $30 – single, and $45 – couple.  Renewal fees are $25 and $40.


Events:

There are ten events per year: two dinners and eight tastings.  July and August are off.  Dinners are in December and April (dates TBD), and all tastings are on the third Monday of the month.

Dinners are at the Spokane Club at 6:30, and tastings are at the Southside Community and Senior Center at 7:00 (See map below).



The Spokane Enological Society is a 501(c)7 not-for-profit organization.
