Wines of Bourgogne! French Wine Tasting Event

  • December 7, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Bourgogne (or in English, Burgundy) is one of the premier wine regions of the world. Known for outstanding Chablis and Chardonnay for whites and Pinot Noir for reds, this region produces fine quality wines and has done so for many, many centuries...going way back to as early as the 14th century!

For this tasting, participants each bring a bottle of wine from this French region. (Suggested retail $15-$50). This semi-private event will be held in someone's home and so the address will be sent later to those who are confirmed to attend. 

Due to limited space, this event will be open only to the first 8 RSVP's. As such, we ask that you please be considerate of our friends and sign up only if you know for sure you will attend, just so that the slot won't be closed to someone else who would've liked to join. Merci!

As part of this tasting, we will also learn a few "dégustation" or wine tasting lingo en français as well as other tasting notes, bien sûr ! 

À Santé ! As they say in France for "Cheers"!

    What a great evening indeed. In-home wine tastings are the best!

      Salut Lionel ! La file d'attente veux dire il n'y a plus d'espace en ce moment. Cet eventment aura lieu chez un autre member et c'est avec un autre groupe en fait. Ce group m'a donné une limite des invitées et alors comme ce n'est pas chez moi et je ne connais pas encore ces personnes je dois respecter leur souhaite. Mais viens pour la dégustation suivante !

    For those who are attending the Burgundy tasting this Saturday...

    The presenter has asked for participants to let him know what Burgundian wines we plan to bring so that he can prepare the tasting notes. If you have a moment and can email me that info by Thursday, that would be great and I will forward it to him. If not, no worries......

    Merci and à bientôt !

      Joelle, sorry but I have not made it to the store yet to purchase the wine. I intend to bring a Chardonnay. Not sure which specific one but I'll let you know.

      No problem. Chardonnay is always a great idea!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
