Thirty-two members in fifteen cars, attending our first event of the year, joined us for a country drive to Athens, a wine and hors d'oeuvre reception at a turn-of-the-previous-century home, lunch, and wine-tasting at the Tara Vineyard and Winery.  Despite cold and wet weather the night before, the sun came out and the skies were blue on the day of our event.Our reception was at the former home of Clint Murchison Sr.  His son Clint Jr. owned the Dallas Cowboys which won two Super Bowls during the Tom Landry era.  The house was moved in several pieces from Downtown Athens to the winery and now serves as an inn.After the reception, we enjoyed lunch at the winery, making our selections from a group menu which was specially prepared for us by Executive Chef Brian Kirksey.  We also presented the 2018 Member of the Year award to Ernest and Yolanda Borroel for their great service to the club.After lunch, we toured the winery and had a tasting of 5 wines at the winery's barrel room, and we had a chance to purchase some of their highly-regarded wines.
