Pours for Paws: A Recap

We had a wonderful time at Pours for Paws this year! There were ten tables to visit for wine sampling (and Van Gogh vodka sampling, too!). We enjoyed fruity white wines like the Folonari Moscato at Table #4 and silky reds like the Parlay Bookmaker Cabernet Sauvignon at Table #3.  At table #8 we enjoyed Russo Limoncello and Carpene Malvolti Prosecco paired together… yum!

Here are a few pictures from the evening.

Live music

Our favorite food was the penne alla vodka!

Thank you to all who came out to support the Branford Compassion Club and the Greater New Haven Cat Project!

If you have any photos from Pours for Paws you would like to share on our blog, please send your photographs and captions to Thanks!
