2019 Wine and Proses Book Club Picks 

While the location has changed to the South Harbor Village Clubhouse because the club outgrew our space, we still keep up with what the club is doing.

The Club began at The Grape & Ale right after we opened in 2008 and grew by leaps and bounds.  We are happy that many of the original members are still active in the club.  New members are always welcome.
