"Of autumn’s wine now drink your fill;
the frost’s on the pumpkin, the snow’s on the hill."

Celebrate the bounty of the harvest and support the University Club Foundation with dinner, a wine pull, or both!

The University Club Foundation will host Uncork Autumn! on Friday, September 27 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Mark Brogna of Capital Wine & Spirits on Lark Street in Albany is lining up a Tasting featuring wines that were recently added to the U.

  •  Raffle tickets will also be available during the evening for $5 each, and guests may enter drawings for collectible wines and other seasonal prizes.
