Empty Glasses Virtual Winetasting Event

Friday, November 12, 2021 – 4:00 to 5:30PM

Hello Friends of CSA –

By popular demand, CSA’s Young Professionals are partnering again with Hook & Ladder Winery for the 3rd Annual Empty Glasses to support CSA safety net services. This time around we will taste some new wines, hear some stories from CSA staff and YP’ers and enjoy each others’ company (finally!).

The virtual tasting will begin at 4:00 pm PST, Friday, November 12th and feature three of Hook & Ladder’s tasty estate wines. These wines can be purchased before the event, shipped to your door, and enjoyed from the comfort of your home. See ordering information below.

For purchases made before the event, Hook and Ladder is generously donating 40% of all proceeds from sales of these featured wines. Not only that, they are offering a flat shipping rate of $10 – just make sure you use the special promo code EMPTYGLASSES. Click here to order wine.

Whether you feel you don’t know much about wine or you’re a pro – this virtual event will cover the basics but also go deep into the tasting notes for those more experienced. Hook & Ladder will include a complimentary tasting card with all orders placed before the event, and they will answer additional questions during our Q&A.

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Register for a free ticket here to get access to the online event and receive event updates.
  2. Go to this special Hook and Ladder CSA Link to order your wine. Please order by November 2nd to allow time for shipping, and make sure to use the special promo code EMPTYGLASSES at checkout for a shipping discount.
  3. Share this event with any wine-loving friends who would be interested in helping those in need in our community. You don’t have to be a Young Professional to participate.
  4. Even if you can’t attend the virtual tasting, you can still purchase wine to support CSA or donate directly to the cause by clicking here.
