Special Winemaker Tasting with Laura Brennan

Bissell of INCONNU & Fundraiser for MISSSEY

For the last two years, we have participated in the Women’s March Oakland because we strongly support this international action that unites all people around the causes of civil rights, empowerment, justice, and ending discrimination and violence.

On Saturday, January 19th, minimo will open at 1pm so that we can march, once again. After the march, we’ll hold a special winemaker tasting and fundraiser, featuring local superstar Laura Brennan Bissell of INCONNU.

100% of net proceeds from the tasting will be donated to MISSSEY ( Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting & Serving Sexually Exploited Youth), an Oakland community-based nonprofit organization that provides supportive services to youth who are victimized by or vulnerable to commercial sexual exploitation. Joining us from MISSSEY will be the Executive Director, Jennifer B. Lyle, who is also a featured speaker at this year’s Women's March Oakland.

Laura was named one of the San Francisco Chronicle’s 2017 “Winemakers to Watch.” The tasting will feature 3 of Laura’s wines: her new release of the Bordeaux-style blend ‘Kitsune,' Lalalu Rosé of Mourvèdre, and a vintage 2014 INCONNU Cabernet Franc. The tasting will run from 1-7pm, with Laura Brennan Bissell and Jennifer B. Lyle present from 2-5pm.

Please come join us for this special event after Women’s March Oakland, help support the phenomenal work of MISSSEY, meet a winemaker whom we love dearly, and continue the conversations of the day.
