Greetings Fellow Winemakers and BBQ Enthusiasts!
The Amador Winemakers Association’s (AWA) annual BBQ is quickly approaching and we would love to invite the Sacramento club out for a fantastic day of culinary deliciousness, camaraderie, and competition. We’ll also be joined by the El Dorado and Grass Valley clubs so it will be a wonderful opportunity to form new friendships, sample some fine wines from the other clubs, and possibly even learn a bit from our neighbors. The BBQ will feature a live band and the much anticipated results from the 2015 Sierra Foothills Wine Competition! We hope to see you there. Check out all of the details below!

Andis Winery

Plymouth, CA 95669
Maximum Capacity: 200 people
PARKING: Andis has somewhat limited parking so we urge folks to carpool if they can.
$15.00 per person.
Bring cash to the next club meeting or a check made payable to the AWA.
We’ll enjoy world ultra tasty BBQ which will include choice of Tri-Tip, Chicken or both, baked beans and coleslaw.
Sometime in May, members will be assigned a dish to bring based on the first letter of their last name. (Ex: Members with last names from A-F will bring appetizers, etc).
This definitely goes without saying but each membership should bring 1 bottle of wine.
5:00- Check-in, grab a glass and mingle
6-6:30 Dinner Time!
7:30- Wine Competition Awards
May 1st- Last day to sign up! If you are not on the attendee list as of this date there will be no admittance. I know this is a bit firm, but we need to have an accurate headcount for the caterer.
May 30th- “GAME DAY” 2015 AWA Spring BBQ Extravaganza
Safety is of the utmost importance– designated drivers are encouraged!
We are making it easy for you folks! We’ll pass around the sign up sheet at the club meetings and you can pay there. Alternatively, you can simply email me to sign up and I will add your name to the attendee list.  Just be sure to bring payment to the next meeting. If you can’t make the meeting let me know and we’ll find another way to “settle up”.
We still need folks to help out with the following: Set up, clean up/tear down, check-in. Please sign up!!!!
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
