Local wine club Valley Vino had a tremendous year in 2013. The new partnership with Avalon Golf and Country Club proved to be a huge success. The attendance at the monthly Wine Academy events exceeded everyone's expectations. Station Square Ristorante and Valley Vino co-hosted five excellent events, including two on their beautiful Tuscan Patio. Here's a look at some of what is to come in 2014:
