Wine night at Ralph's house

Summer is winding down unfortunately and I haven’t had a wine tasting since Christmastime.  I am ready for another great blowout of an event as always.  Let's kick off Fall with a blast. I am inviting all to kick off your shoes or whatever at my house. The situation is the same as past wine tasting events...

Wine night at my house... on a Sat September 21, 2013 in Cheshire CT 6 pm - 10 pm +.  RSVP's start on Thur. 8/15 at 5 pm.

For wine night, everyone will bring a bottle of wine (no boxed wine or 1.75 ML please) AND a pot luck main dish, finger food, Hors D'oeuvre or dessert. Some people go out of there way to make scrumptious food and some bring chips.  Can we all bring something tasty and on par a little.  Please indicate what food item you want to bring when you sign up. I think I have enough wine glasses now thanks to all of the contributions.  They will be located in the living room. If you bring a special one, take it home please.

If you are coming by yourself or don't want to go in with someone just bring a bottle of wine that is $15 or more. Couples or groups can go in together on a bottle that is $25 or more depending on the quantity of people in the group, to ensure we have a good assortment of wines to taste.

Get some different types of wine so we have a varied taste testing... Reds Malbec, Blends, cab, merlot, shiraz pinot noir, whites - sav blanc, chards, reisling, pinot grigio, etc

Please be courteous to the group and ensure you show up if you RSVP yes, since we may have a waiting list and you are taking up a person’s spot if you do not show up.  I am setting the limit at 15 people for four groups with  up to 1 guest each.  If the waiting list is long I may open it for more.

Invitations open on Thursday after 5pm and continue until 9/19.  If you don’t know by then, we’ll see you the next time.  I usually end up with someone wanting the address on Saturday at 4pm.

*Please note* The address will be sent a few days prior to the event if you don't have it already to all the "yes" RSVPs, due to this being a private residence. It should go without saying to Drink Responsibly. I will have water and coffee too. Do not RSVP on more than one site to get an accurate count of people attending.  I am an organizer on most of the sites so I’ll remove the duplicates or get the owner to do that.
