Stephen Schmerbeck says the First Friday Wine Share is unique locally, in that it's not about business.

"Carrie and I appreciate what the Chamber of Commerce does, and we participate in their functions as well. One of our standard events is the introduction to the Business Expo. But we want to be a place where people can go and just mingle, without selling or being sold on something."
