Thank you to all who took the time to join SACC-GA and Arnall Golden Gregory last night for a Swedish inspired holiday mingle.

Delicious saffron buns (lussebullar), gingerbread cookies and wonderful christmas candy was catered by Anna Bringle at Swedish Dreamish. We hope you all enjoyed the evening, made some new connections and/or got time to chat with friends and colleagues in the Swedish-American community.

Happy Holidays,

SACC-GA Wine-Working

SACC-GA’s wine-working 2017 took place on November 16th at the SACC-GA office space at SPACES Midtown.

Wine-guru Brandon Tai, with over 10 years experience in the industry, presented a wide variety of wines and we all tried to “taste the price”. We learned about how a fine wine tastes like it was painted with a fine brush with intricate layers of flavors, while a more inexpensive one might taste more blunt and as if the painter used wider brush strokes. It was a great evening and we wish to thank all of you who attended and participated in the tasting. We hope you enjoyed it and learned as much as we did!
