~~~IT"S WINE TIME!!!~~~
The featured varietal for October is Gewurztraminer.
This will be a blind tasting of the stated varietal. (No you don't have to be blind to do this - just wear some cool sunglasses) .
We'll meet at a member's home in Novato for hors d'oeuvres, vino, dinner, and fun!
There will be a social hour beginning at 7:00pm then we'll start the tasting sometime thereafter, or whenever we get to it, as we want to accommodate members coming from out of town.
Ea member brings a bottle in the $20-$30 price range.
The bottles will be bagged and numbered and we'll have note sheets w/ categories for rating the wine. At the end of the night (or sooner) we'll determine which bottle wins ( this will be determined numerically) - pls no questions yet!
If this isn't clear I'm sure it's just because I'm a kindergarten dropout, and has nothing to do w/ the fact that you're just not grasping what I'm saying.
Just kidding. Well not about my education, or lack thereof. Ah, but I digress. Don't worry about the details, as they will sort themselves, and once you've done this you'll love it.
As always, PLEASE update your RSVP early if you think you won't make it, out of consideration for the host home and the grp - thx! In the past we've waited for members who never showed up.
What To Bring:
~A bottle of Gewurztraminer in the $20-$30 price range (this insures a relatively consistent tasting)
~Hors d'oeuvres - food that keeps wl/ the Thanksgiving theme. Turkey, sweet potatoes, gravy, smashed garlic mash (potatoes), pumpkin pie, be creative. Some brie and sourdough or crackers is always popular - especially when the brie is hot), hard cheeses w/ crackers or bread, meats, cheeses, wraps, quiche, someone brought vino soaked meatballs last month that ROCKED!!!
-Extra vino you think we might enjoy prior to the tasting.
`Your Sense Of Humour!
My top priority is for everyone to have fun, so please be patient if the tasting doesn't begin when you expect it to.
Come expecting to have fun, enjoy socializing, and learn something new about vino!
