The next meeting of the East Las Vegas Valley Chapter of the American Wine Society is set for Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the Royal Crystal Event Center.

Jay has been closely involved with wine since he was a child (helping both of his Italian grandfathers make wine).  He is one of three International Wine Masters in the world. He has studied viticulture and winemaking around the world, is very active on the wine competition circuit and has written for multiple wine publications.
