Our wine sponsor, Protea wines, who served their Chenin Blanc and a Red Blend. Bottles are designed by Mark Eisen and are the ultimate in green. Protea drinkers are encouraged to “upcycle” their bottle and reuse the bottle in their home for floral displays, as an olive oil pourer or as a chic candle holder. For more information, visit Protea.
