Femi Oyediran ~ Wine As We See It

No matter where in the world you are, wine has a magical, mystical power to bring people together. Whether its showing up at a dinner party with a beautiful bottle of Cabernet, or sipping Chardonnay on the patio all summer long, wine is featured in so many of lifes finer moments.
Femi Oyediran and Miles White are two young Charleston-based Sommeliers and the co-owners of Graft Wine Shop. Together, the two friends will share their personal stories and explain why they think wine is an accessory that tightens connections between friends and strangers. With Mr. Oyediran and Mr. White, its always about the wine! Boxed lunches will be served.
