On May 20th, the GBTA St. Louis chapter will be hosting our first in-person COVID responsible event at the Cedar Lake Cellars winery in Wright City. Association members are complimentary and guests just $20.00. This event offers an excellent chance to catch up with peers, professionals, and friends in a wonderful setting. Cedar Lake Cellars offers both Missouri and California wines as well as international selections. This diversity coupled with fresh breezes off their three-acre lake equals a mental spa visit.
