Italian Wine Club - STARTING THIS MONTH!!!

Finalmente!!! Finally, an Italian Wine Club!!!
Every month we'll meet at Bel-Caffe' coffee house & wine bar to focus on a particular region of Italy, its wines, cuisine, and traditions. We'll have some antipasti and taste several wines from that particular region. I encourage everyone to participate in this and bring photos, materials, books, stories, anything in regards to that region. Come learn about the Italian regional culture & wine, and also practice your Italian skills!

We'll start our first meeting this month, Nov. 22 to talk about Piemonte. It's a region that is perfect to talk about just before the holidays! Piedmont: the region’s name comes from "ai piedi del monte" (at the foot of the mountains), the imposing Alpine ranges with famous skiing resorts such as Sestriere, Bardonecchia, Limone Piemonte, where the last Winter Olympics took place.
Its principal city Turin is a centre of baroque art and has one of the most important Egyptian museums in the world. A sophisticated city also renown for its world-class chocolatiers.
Piedmont is a large industrial centre and the wine produced on its southern hills (Barolo, Barbera, Barbaresco, Moscato, Dolcetto D'Alba, Asti Spumante) is particularly important.
Monferrato and Langhe hills are famous for its superb foods, Medieval Castles, and for the esteemed White Truffle.

Guided wine tasting of: Moscato D'Asti, Dolcetto D'Alba, Barbera, Barolo.
Cost: $15 (includes wines and antipasti). Pay directly to Bel-Caffe' upon your arrival.

    Grazie a tutti, thank you so much for coming to last night's event! Wow!! I still cannot believe we had such a huuuge turnout! A lot of new people showed up who aren't part of our group, because I had sent out a newsletter to my mailing list last week, and that includes a lot of people who love "all things Italian" but aren't necessarily part of the Italian Social Club.
    I was very happy to see such a huge crowd, but you probably noticed that I was a bit nervous because I was afraid people weren't hearing me. Now I know that next time I'll need to bring a microphone!
    This was the first meeting of the new "Italian Wine Club" series and like all things that are done for the first time, it can only improve with practice, so I welcome your comments and suggestions to make this better for next time.
    I really want this wine club to be a bit different than many others, to make it more interactive so that all members are active participants rather than passive spectators.

    I liked the wine selection, and it was really nice to have a little 'lesson' on each wine. Very helpful, and very fun!
