February 2014 First Friday

This Month's Speaker is:

Jack Farrell
Chairman and CEO
Haskell’s Wine and Spirits

Haskell’s is one of the largest retailers of fine wines in the country with 13 locations in the Twin Cities metro area. Jack Farrell acquired Haskell’s over 40 years ago and today travels to major wine-producing areas all over the world, visiting vineyards and tasting and evaluating their wines. He is frequently a guest on WCCO radio during special broadcasts over the various holidays including a weekly wine chat on Saturday morning. He has led over 30 tours of Europe with special emphasis on wine and food and has accompanied the Food Editors of America on several fact-finding trips around the world. Join us in February when Farrell will be discussing the controversial issue of wine and health – is wine actually good for you?
