    The Dillard House is celebrating its 100th Birthday by showcasing North Georgia wines with fans and friends.  TV personality, award-winning sommelier and comedian, Laurie Forster, delivers an edgy, off-beat hilarious show where wine meets punchline. Using her down to earth approach to wine education, Forster peels back the labels of a few of her favorite North Georgia wines while she exposes some the deep secrets of the wine industry and why she thinks its so darn funny! Relax with a glass (or three!) of wine, because with Forster there are no formalities when it comes to drinking. This is a tasting that will forever change how you look at wine!

    Wine, Dine, and Punchlines is an original comedy show & wine tasting that includes on-stage audience participation.  During the show, Forster leaves no stone unturned when it comes to talking about wine and why we like it. Maybe you love the full body of a Malbec or the smooth buttery finish of a chardonnay. Who knows? Who cares? But by the end of this show three things are certain. You are confident about what you like, exhausted from laughing and completely relaxed.
