Great Frogs Virtual Wine Tasting
Friday, November 20
Let us bring the tasting room to you!
The Key Parents' Association is once again thrilled to be partnering with our friends at Great Frogs Winery. We invite you to spend an evening in the comfort of your own home, enjoying a selection of Great Frogs wines while learning about the notes and nuances of each with the guidance and expertise of tasting room associate Ben Johnson.
Benjamin Johnson grew up the youngest of seven between New England and Minnesota (go Vikings!) Always having a love for traveling he has been to nearly 50 countries across 6 continents. After working for years in the field he is most passionate about (children with special needs, specifically non-verbal autism), he spent time volunteering around the world - from Alaska, Africa, Asia, Central America, and others. Returning to the Annapolis area he has been working for his brother Nathanael Johnson O'Shea, owner of Great Frogs Winery. The skills and knowledge he has learned from meeting people of all walks of life, in addition to trying wines from around the world from his brother's wine collection, as well as trying any experience put in his path, has helped him specialize in creating custom wine pairing experiences. He feels that "wine is the key to unlocking your palate," because if experienced correctly, wine can transform a good meal into an exceptional one!
