    This was my first time at a American Wine Society of L.A. tasting. I had a really good time. Met some interesting people and tried some good wines.

    Tasted some fabulous zins & met new friends. Host & hostess were warm & welcoming.
    Would make it five stars but tried several times to become involved with rating system
    And did not find the folks who looked like they knew what they were doing to be friendly or helpful. Willing to give it another try tho!

    Dazzling, delightful, delicious, extravaganza with colossal range of Zins, BBQ and fellowship. A night to remember if you can remember after tasting so many super wines.

    An extraordinary evening. Intelligent, knowledgeable wine drinkers. An good assortment of fine wines (withe notable exception of a jug of Carlo Rossi White Zinfandel). More wines than any human could have tasted.

    I've changed the RSVP's to No for everyone who hasn't paid or at least confirmed they've sent in their payment (or agreed to pay at the event). If you haven't confirmed, but want to attend, we still have a few spots open. Feel free to RSVP as Yes, but please note in your comments that you will pay at the door.

    I am available to drive from Santa Monica if anyone wants to carpool. Please send me a message.

    August 13, 2012

  • Shelley M.

    Anyone want to carpool from Marina Del Rey/Venice /Santa Monica area?

    August 12, 2012

  • Joan R.

    Since I'm guessing so many people could create a parking problem, does anyone want to carpool with me from North Hollywood/Studio City. I can take three people comfortably.

      If you are willing to drive west and south on the 405 past our way, we are willing to bring your bottle of wine. Message me if you're interested. There are 3 of us total.

      Mei, Where exactly are you? And you don't have to bring my wine.

    Zinfandel. My favorite varietal. Now what winery? Hmm... this will take some thought.

    Hi there! I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone and tasting some great wines!

    Hi! Would love to be part of this to break into the group... Can't commit at this stage as I may have to cater a dinner. Was just thinking if having a couple of patrimonios (close cousins to the zin) or a Croatian red even closer may be interesting just to confirm (or not) the kinship. all the best

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
