Wine & Galentine Virtual Event with ABQ Mom & Vara Winery


Grab your mom friends or come to make new ones during this one of a kind Wine & Galentine night brought to you by Vara Wine & Distillery. Vara will be treating us to a guided cocktail tasting experience.

Save the date of Thursday, January 28 at 7 pm for ABQ Mom’s 2021 Wine & Galentine virtual event!

If there’s ever a time when you need deep and meaningful friendships, it’s during your journey in motherhood. But sadly we’ve found this year has been tough to form those connections with other women. So we’re asking you, “Will you be our mom friend?”

Maybe you’re in need of a mom tribe or your “soul mom.” Well, maybe you will find your MFF (mom friend forever) at this fun evening all from the comfort of your home.

Pick up your exclusive Vara cocktail kit, make yourself a pretty bouquet, get into your jammies, and enjoy a night of learning all about the Vara Sweet & Seco cocktail with some wonderful ABQ mamas.

After Vara gives us a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into their Vermut, we will host some fun games to bring some laughter into your life (we could all use that, am I right?), meet some new local mamas, or bring you closer with friends you attend with.

If you’re looking to expand your village, this event is for you. If you have an amazing village, bring them along and have a super fun Galentine event together!

Are you a business that might be interested in partnering with us for Wine & Galentine? Please email [email protected] with your business info for more details! We would love florists, biscochitos, or prizes.
