GUSTO Tasting Group | Monthly Theme Tasting- Texas vs. The World

This tasting group is open to ANYONE who wants to join a community of like minded people who have a passion for learning and seeking out new things in terms of food & drink.

This is intended to be a monthly themed tasting where every month we will have the opportunity to focus on a topic that the meetup group decides on as well as the opportunity to bring in guest and celebrity hosts. Themed tastings are not limited to just wine; so no topic is really off limits in terms food and drink. Your input on themes is greatly appreciated.

As with the blind tasting group, the idea with a themed tasting is to bring people together; both professionals and enthusiasts alike to create a sense of community and to learn about things we love and are passionate about.

Honor Guest: Patrick "Pat" Johnson,Veteran Texas Winemaker and legendary icon of the Texas wine industry will be at hand to talk to us about the challenges of growing grapes in the state, and the success that can be achieved.

    The Organizers were great and the meetup was well run. I will go to many more events with Gusto!! I did however choose the Australian Shiraz as the best of the evening and the French Rose as a close second. I was however pleasantly surprised with the quality of the Texas wines and will be going to some Texas wineries soon.

    Really looking forward to this tasting! It's not everyday you have Two winemakers and three Sommeliers in a private tasting for 30 in one of Austin's premier eatery, III Forks.

However, we are exited to announce that Marc Sauri CWS & Sommelier at III Forks is sponsoring event space for this tasting! We will also have a guest speaker, Texas Veteran Winemaker, Patrick "Pat" Johnson of the now-defunct legendary Blue Mountain Winery in Fort Davis.
