Are you as obsessed with all the gorgeous glass demijohns as we are? But maybe you aren’t sure how to practically use it in your home or how to dress it for fancy or low-key decor spaces. Perhaps you have a few demijohns but want to grow your collection based on knowledge, history, types and value. Then come to our December luncheon to enjoy a private class on all things demijohn. Given by our VMC neighbor Harold Estabrook, you’ll be surprised at how many beautiful options await the collector in you. Harold and his wife have spent years scouring Italy and beyond for the best and most unique demijohns. Come and learn from their experience.

Already have a demijohn or two or five? Sign up to bring your demijohn for display at the luncheon. There will be a prize for the people’s choice best dressed demijohn. Because of space requirements, only 20 people can participate. Please email 1stvp@vccitaly.org to let Bevin know you want to bring your demijohn to the luncheon.

There is ample parking on site in the restaurant lot, but carpooling is recommended.

Our event is upstairs in a private space. They are allowing us to come in before they open but VCC greeters will be out front to show you the way to the fun!

Cost: €23

Includes one trip to their extensive buffet, coffee, tea, water and dessert. Prosecco will be available on the honor system or you can order from the wine list.
